Getting to this point has been an interesting trip! I have learned some things about truly creating a line including needing to be more consistent with my findings so I know everything will work together! This will be my biggest challenge to finalize with my designs but the concept is in place and I already have a new store that will be selling it!


While most charms will be one of a kind I plan on creating signature charms as well that I will be able to recreate. The charms will be priced from $3.00 and go up to $25+ but be more of a focal pendant and the base necklaces and bracelets will start at $14 and go up to $60+ depending on the design.


If you like a simple charm hanging from a bracelet or want to build an entire cha cha style charm bracelet you will be able to customize your pieces and change them as you wish!

Check out the new line at Katrina’s Upcycled Furnishing! They will be available at the beginning of April and available online sometime in May!!

And don’t forget that The Vintage Bead Shop is now selling on Facebook and open Friday’s 10-3 or by appointment for Locals and visitors!


Thank you to B’Sues Boutique for offering this course!  It has been an interesting journey for me.  Be sure to hop along the rest of the ladies that have done this challenge along with me!!
