Nancy Drew Jewelry Update - Some Previews

Just wanted to follow up on the voting that went on a couple months ago that many of you voted in! We're getting ready to produce the jewelry and the top 2 images were the Tandy art of Nancy Drew from The Secret of the Old Clock and The Secret in the Old Attic in all Blog polls and Facebook postings. What I'm trying to do with this line is appeal to you guys, the collectors. Products you would want to see on the market that we can do in smaller runs than a big company would normally do or even envision for our market. We're a niche market after all. Guys included too--we'll have cufflinks and can do money clips if anyone is interested.

I've gotten some great mock ups of the line to preview here. It won't be in stock for another month or so but check these out. All jewelry is sterling silver plated and lead and nickel free--made in the USA by Classic Hardware! Very nice quality jewelry. These are captures from the PDF files I was sent so they're not the clearest but they will give a nice idea of how things will look. If you ever purchased the Nancy Drew jewelry from the Gumshoe Girls or their cases when they were in business a few years ago--it's the same company they used--Classic Hardware--and the same good quality.

Wallet cases are high quality steel cases with epoxy images--3" x 4" x .5". Necklace chains are 17". Bracelet chains are 8". Rings come in size 7 and 8 and we can also get 9.

-Wallet cases will sell for 36.00.
-Rings will sell for 22.00 and will come in sizes 7 and 8.
-Necklaces with silver chains will sell for 32.00.
-Necklaces with the beaded chains in either the blue opal or the cream pearl will sell for 40.00.
-Charm bracelets will sell for 32.00.
-Cufflinks (not pictured) will sell for 26.00 for a pair (same style as shown below)


Inside of case:



Necklaces with beads will have either blue opal beads or the cream pearl:





If you are interested in ordering, I'm taking pre-order e-mail RSVPs. We are going to be doing a limited run of each jewelry piece per image so once those are gone, that's it for that image. Therefore if you're interested in something, e-mail to reserve it: sleuths@ndsleuths.com. Not taking money right now, just e-mail me and say what art/what piece(s) you want to reserve. The line should be in stock 4 weeks+ from when I place the order. (Guys if you want those cufflinks or money clips, let me know!)

Doing it this way provides me with the knowledge of whether anyone is even interested in the line--and whether it's worth the investment for us.

They look great! Where did you get the images from? They are bigger than the covers! Are they from the original paintings?

I'd love a charm bracelet with multiple charms of different covers, would you ever do one of those?

The Nancy Drew Style Guide available to all licensees has images of all covers. The Old Clock comes from my scan of my book and the Attic comes from Popcorn Posters.

Eventually a charm bracelet with 5 charms once we get up to 5 images going, we'll be doing a 5 charm bracelet with them. But to get to the 5, I have to make sure it's popular enough with the 2 images before adding in a 3rd, 4th, and 5th. We have to order a minimum of each image on products so it's an investment for sure :)
