Studio Barse on HSN

I love everything that I have received from the Studio Barse line. But, I am not loving the bronze items. I watched the show this morning and I felt that they were really pushing the bronze items. Hope this isn't a trend. Any thoughts?

I really don't like the bronze items. I can only wear either gold or silver. I also got a really nice purple spinal silver ring from studio barse which I love.

I just made my 1st purchase of Studio Barse. Those bronze pieces caught my eye also. I don't wear any other copper or bronze myself, but they looked good !! ....I'm trying the stretch beaded bracelets, 3 in a set, for almost $25. They have some nice pieces, I'm ordering from the reviews and seeing them on the host.

I have a small wrist and it said fits 5 and 1/2" and up. The host has had them on during the show, and it got my attention.....I got 2 sets of the Turq. and 2 sets of the Tigers Eye...if I like all of them I'll keep them. If not I'll make the best sets I can out of the 12 of them, then return what I need.

I love Barse. Started at Dillards then I discovered them at hsn.

I bought the bronze & turq ring when it was on last & a couple necklaces. I didn't know they were on today. bye ---

I haven't purchased anything yet but the bronze is what attracts me to it. It is different & the metal would look great with my coloring.

It's a way to up the profits at very little cost. Bronze is SO in, no more silver or gold, bronze baby, bronze. {#emotions_dlg.lol}

I could put up with a few bronze pieces, but I really dislike the composite and dyed stones.

I absolutely love bronze. There isn't any nickel in bronze which is made from copper and brass which is great for us who can't deal with nickel. I do like jewerly that uses different metals together and hope to see more of it made. My wedding ring is white and yellow gold and love the look.

Edited to add: I would have purchase SB tonight if I saw something a whole lot smaller, too chunky for me but I do think it is pretty.

Bronze minus silver = cheap.

ITA re stones.

Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?

I loved her bronze bangels but didn't purchase because I was afraid the color would turn. I really loved her bronze rings too.

I am sorry to get off the subject but the host Suzanne Runyan was on the Barse show - wasn't she a QVC host years ago? If so, why did she leave Q?

I love the look of the bronze. I have never purchased Studio Barse before but I purchased a necklace and pendant. I cannot wear costume jewerly if it touches my skin so I will wear them over a turtleneck.

I enjoyed watching this show since I new to this channel (got sick of the same old Q) Really like the bronze look but didn't order because everything was sooooooo big! Now I love big jewelry so for me to say this it has to be over the top... I sometimes think these designers make these items big to make more money.

I bought several of the studio barse line in the onxy. (bracelet, earrings, and necklace). I returned them all because I was not crazy for it. Now the Bali line on HSN is a whole different matter. I have bought at least 10 pieces over the year and love it.

Thanks for the info. I will look at the Bali line.

My personal opinion only is that Suzanne left QVC because they were downplaying their scrapbooking and crafting shows. Suzanne was sort of a specialist in that. HSN was into it big for awhile. Now they have slacked off, too. I think she is a versatile host, I enjoy watching her.
