Sure! I have done this for years and had good success. I first got
the idea years ago… (many)… when I was doing a lot of
photography. I did 3 shows at that time with themes… one was
called “Windows”, One was called “Old” and I did one called “Cloud
Scapes”. Later in jewelry, I did the “Love” collection… it was a
series of highly detailed pieces, taking things like Maub pearls and
letting them serve as a dress for a lady setting in an arched
window.All high end, all in 18K & 22K Gold. The collection had
hundreds of pieces in it… all romantic & expressing love. I sold
the entire collection in Spain…and that customer oddly enough sold
it to a guy in Florida.
I just started a collection a few weeks ago called “Big Cats” it is
a cufflink series that I for some unknown reason decided to do…
here is an image of one set…
There are also round ones, pear shaped and others… all with
different “Big Cats” on them. I do this with CNC machining so I can
keep the cost down for the current economy. These are made from an
actual photograph. I did one piece like this of Michael Jackson as
well. I’m considering adding a couple more pieces.
I have always had good luck with themes… I’d encourage anyone that
the thought strikes to try it. DO IT! Just bail off & DO IT!
Nothing ventured, nothing gained!!
I have two more themes ready to launch… but I want to do them in
Gold and I’m waiting for the economy to get better. Perhaps
Christmas 2010!!! I would suggest something at this time in the
moderate price range… GOOD LUCK!!! I’d like to see what you do if
you get the chance!!
