I R a Photographer

Filed under: Uncategorized — by serendipper @ 2:07 pm

I usually use my scanner to scan my jewelry for pictures, but last week I set up a mini photo studio in my dining room. I created a diffuser by taping together some old craft boxes. Recycle! I set it under my monster dining room light, and I lit it from the side with a halogen light. I used a sheet of silver metallic paper for a backdrop, as it’s a nice neutral grey.


I think the pictures turned out pretty well. See them here:

Adventures in Aventurine

My client ended up buying both necklaces to go with this pendant because I showed her that she can hook them together into a double strand. Now she has multiple options!

I Don’t Do Yellow

I hate yellow, but I knew my boss would love this. Yellow turquoise jasper and hematite from Szarka, pewter.

Close up of the back of the pendant and the steel wire bail. The pendant is removable so she can put it on another necklace.

Have Wire, Will Travel

Filed under: Uncategorized — by serendipper @ 11:18 pm

*Sold* Being trapped in a hotel with my mom because I have no power at home is not exactly how I planned my weekend. But, I did bring some beads and wire and finished this necklace and a few other things. I did leave some things at home that I needed. Oh well. We are going home tomorrow anyway.
