Atlantic Highlands, NJ (PRWEB) November 7, 2005
The premiere series released from the Garden Pendant Collection® will be retired after its first-year debut. The nine designs that comprise the Portfolio and Portrait series were destined to be a garden-item collectable. After one year in the marketplace, this limited edition offers retailers and their customers the opportunity to collect one of each of the nine featured designs or to own multiples of a favorite. The Portfolio line Pendants include an attractive fleur de lis chain clasp and the Portrait line features botanical and plant designs. All come complete with hanging chain.
The Garden Pendant Collection will launch its new Bling! Line to the market in January ‘06. The Bling! Pendants feature new designs in this innovative, custom-crafted Collection that reflect the ethereal look of watercolors, inspired by the luster of gemstones, and other natural elements including turquoise, amethyst, silver, and coral.
The Garden Pendant Collection is the first-ever line of artful, hanging planters with a built-in water reservoir for self-watering. The Garden Pendants are unique hand-painted planters that feature creative designs to complement the home and garden.
According to Leeann Lavin, Garden Pendant designer, Duchess Designs, “There was limited production of the Garden Pendants’ initial design series. I wanted there to be an exclusivity to the Collection so that an owner would feel enthusiastic about not only owning a container that is better for the plants and looks beautiful, but to know they were getting a piece of hand-made garden art that will be prized for its status as a collectible. These designs are one of a kind that will not be made again.” Lavin said. “We are eager to launch the new Bling! Series which will bring a rich, new look to the garden “room jewelry” design,” she added.
Retailer and customer reaction has been so favorable to the Garden Pendants. Typical retail feedback is “I just wanted to let you know that we received the Garden Pendants and they are beautiful. Customers write: “I looked all over in stores and on the Internet for something lightweight but decorative and not plastic, and it appears this is really a unique product!” The Garden Pendant Collection has received the prestigious “Editor’s Choice” from Garden Center Products and Supplies (GCP&S) which cited it as an interesting product suggestion for retailers to increase customer traffic. Editors described the Garden Pendants as “attractive as the plants in it.” The Garden Pendant is also one of the few select products to be featured in the official 2005 Product Review Guide for The Gift Fair in Atlanta®.
