Blog Partnership :: September 2012 :: Part 2

One reward of running the blog partner program is the chance to see all the different designs utilizing Nina Designs bronze jewelry components. We had so many impressive designs this month! Check out our final three blog partners from September.

Hazel Ward of Continuum Designs is not only an accomplished jewelry designer but she also makes her own polymer clay beads. This mixed material master made a beautiful design using our natural bronze lotus marquis pendant.  Her necklace is not only gorgeous but extremely unique. Continuum Designs blog is informative, witty, funny and full of great tips.

How do you know when your obsessed with jewelry making? According to Hazel:  “Your partner/roomate/cat hears a rattling noise in the night, and knows that it’s just you combing greedily through your bead stash by the light of the moon.”  Sound familiar to anyone?

Jenn Fitz Patrick’s blog  A Jewelry Crush is clean, modern and uniquely cultivated. She regularly features fellow designers on her blog. The interviews are fantastic and so inspirational! It’s a great source for exploring what other designers are creating. Jenn is on the pulse of jewelry trends and even has some great project ideas on her blog. Jenn’s blog  reminds us how fun and sexy jewelry can be.

Molly Condit of  Rue de la Marguerite has one of the most unique blogs we’ve encountered! It’s full of vintage watch re purposed jewelry and photos of her many adorable cats. Her blog is warm, inviting and very entertaining.  Rue de la Marguerite’s shop has it all; necklaces, bracelets and rings from re purposed watches, typewriters and keys. She even has men’s cuff-links made from vintage watch parts! Molly also has an enormous heart. She donates 10% of the proceeds from her shop to PAWSitively Cats, which is a no kill cat shelter near her home in Arizona. What a great motivation to buy jewelry from a talented designer!
