Aquamarine Beach glass and metalwork silver earrings

  • June 29, 2012 10:20 AM

Taking photographs of jewelry is not easy. In this case I have made numerous attemps to capture these earrings in a way that they will look just as they are – translucent, freeform, somewhat  bulky and natural. When I tried to photograph them  on a white backgraound – they  simply would not stay put! – they turned around, would not stay in one place, gave me a bad time!

Finally, I decided to “put them in their place” so to speak, took a beautiful peach and stuck them there to see if this would bring them back to order! I succeeded! ! I think….

This morning I looked at the photgraph with the peaches and thought to  myself – “this is not too bad, but I would prefer a more neutral backgraound”. I placed a wine glass on the table and began a new series of photographs. I do not know whether they are perfect, but at least customers can view most/all angles of the earrings:

The earrings shown here on the model can give you an idea of the proportions and look of the earrings. They were photographed  with a similar pair, with the same sizes, settings etc.

Finally – Would you like to know what has become of the peach after I finished taking photos? –  I ate it of course!!

Silver Metalwork and Blue Sea Glass Ring

  • June 27, 2012 8:12 AM

Believe it or not, some people simply do not like the color BLUE. I have met in my life many people who  dislike certain colors. I am not a pyschologist so I do not have a professional explanation for this, but what I do think is that something in certain colors have to do with unpleasant experiences they might have had in life which  left a “bug” in their subconscious minds?… well I am going to stick to my handmade jewelry designs and leave psychology to the experts. As for myself – I am open to all colors, depends where I find them whether in reality, a photograph or art print.

Anyway – here’s a ring I designed and handcrafted recently

A friend of mine said about this ring “I do not like blue, but I’d love to wear this ring anytime”. So there you go!

A great compliment from someone who does not like “Blue”.
