2016 is the election year, and while political candidates are clamoring for your vote, we at hART Sense Design have some much nicer looking candidates to present to you. We hope you'll decide to cast your vote for one (or three) of them.
As hART Sense Design plans the release of Spring jewelry collection, slated to be in our online shop in time for Mothers Day, I would like to present six new styles to you, and ask you to vote for your favorites. Our BCC Club members had the first dibs (Club voting ends at the end of February), and now, it's our readers' turn.
So, what's in it for you? One of the lucky voters will win the design they voted for. Yes, you read it right: a brand new, never seen before necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings can be yours just for voting!
Let's get started!
First, take a look at the sketches below.
Next, complete the poll associated with one or all three design pairs.
Last but not least, keep an eye on your email or our blog around mid-March. That is when the winner(s) will be announced.
Up first, the necklaces. Pearls are for (cow)girls, and both of the new necklace designs have them, just in a different style.
Next, we have bracelets. Choose between a leather bracelet and a copper bracelet below.
Last but not least, here are the earrings. Make your choice by voting below.
Thank you for voting! Your help means a lot to us. Now, keep an eye on your email around March 15th to see if you have won.
And now, a bit of bragging...
Our Rose Quartz necklace with a copper plated natural aspen leaf pendant will be featured in the Spring Fashion issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine. With Rose Quartz as one of the Pantone (tm) signature Spring 2016 colors, now is the time to get yours in hART Sense Design shop. This is one-of-a-kind piece, but don't despair should you reach our shop after it sells. We are planning to release several similar designs in a couple of weeks.
Do you prefer wearing necklaces, bracelets, or earrings? Why? Tell us in the comments below.
Although the white stuff is still covering the ground in most of the Northern Hemisphere, it is time to think about spring, especially when ladies' fashion is concerned. Last year, Pantone, the renowned color forecasting service, announced new fashion colors for the Spring 2016 season, which took us in the western wear and accessories niche a bit by surprise. You see, all of our leather, turquoise and coral might have to give way to softer, pastel hues come spring.
Even though we can still use some coral accents (Pantone Fiesta) and very pale turquoise (Pantone Limpet Shell), the rest of the colors call for new gemstones in jewelry design and some inventive spirit in the western clothing industry.
Below, you can see three different avenues we at hART Sense Design will be pursuing this spring: Rosey Mood - utilizing Pantone colors Rose Quartz and Serenity, Natural Beauty - combining Pantone colors Iced Coffee, Lilac Grey and Rose Quartz, and last but not least, a little more traditional western Old Barn - showcasing Pantone colors Fiesta and Limpet Shell.
Clothing, footwear, bags, and hats showcased in the mood boards above encompass such icons of western fashion as Old Gringo, Johnny Was, Liberty Black, American West, Charlie 1 Horse, Pat Dahnke and more. All of these products with links to the sites where they can be purchased are found here.
To make sure our customers like our Spring 2016 jewelry styles, we have opened the six jewelry designs seen above to voting at our BCC Club. If you want to give us your input, make sure to join the Club and you just might get rewarded for your vote by the very bracelet, necklace, or pair of earrings you voted for. Voting is open through the end of February, and winning designs will be announced by mid-March.
