The Norma Jean Collection

A new path leading me on a whole new journey. Back in November, I started working on a new line of jewelry. I wanted to create fabulous colorful designs that were eye catching, eclectic and fun to wear. I had already played around with a few designs concepts, and they seemed to go over well with everyone that saw them. Then that little break came, that door opened.  A gallery was interested in giving my little beauties a wonderful home. I was so excited and honored. But they said we need to come up with a new name. Just Bananas is not going to work.  Oh dear... what is a fitting name for these new designs. For whatever reason I did not want to use my own name. I felt they deserved better than that, so the only thing left to do was to name this new collection after the most intriguing woman I know, my Mom. So there you have it... the Norma Jean Collection was born.

You know, there is so much more to the process of launching a new line of jewelry. That I thought I would share it with you. I have so much to learn... so I thought it might be fun  to share my journey with you.  So here goes...

Got the name... the designs are being born... they have their first home... I am having a logo designed...
got my domain name (no site yet)...  have a basic print layout that accompanies each design (this will probably change when I get the new logo)...

What comes next? I would love to hear your input and ideas.

In the mean time... here are a few of my designs, each is named after someone very special and hidden within each necklace is a tiny turtle for good luck.
