Hey Bling Lovers!
The first few months of 2015 have been über busy for me, with creating a brand new website, launching the T. Nicole Designs Etsy Store , working on multiple collections at the same time and launching my YouTube channel. But the hard work has been well worth it for me, as my second collection, the Safari Collection, officially debuted at midnight on Thursday!
Africa… the inspiration behind the Safari Collection. In all her beauty and majesty she encompasses the entire world in one continent. Every culture has touched her shores, the Dutch, the English, the Spaniards, the Portuguese and in taking a little from them, she has given back just as much. Each piece within the Safari collection is inspired by the colors of the vast African landscape, each takes its name from traits that it exhibits and the languages spoken therein.
I’m extremely proud of this collection, it was in the works for 2+ months and I spent hours designing, creating, photographing and editing pieces that I fell in love with. The beauty of my work is that it isn’t mass produced. Each piece is created by hand by me, each piece is never completely the same as the one before it, as gemstones have natural variations from bead to bead, and there likely won’t be more than 5 copies of any one piece that I make. Each piece is unique…just like you are.
