Product Photography

I have been experimenting a little with product photography. Everyone says you should have your jewelry photos on a plain white background. So earlier this year I spent a long time doing just that but boy are they boring…

I had mostly taken my pics with my phone against the barn wood in my studio or right at my bench – nothing that fancy – but it felt a little more interesting and more of a fit with my brand, which is clearly not glossy celebrity magazine style imagery. I figured I could probably do a little bit better if I put my mind to it so I got out my DSLR and a few props (that’s a fancy photography term for some rocks, twigs an old log and random tiles laying around the barn LOL)

Anyway here are a few of the ones I played around with. What do you think?

Forgetful or what?

You know every time I go to a show, I forget something! First time I brought none of my bracelets – none – not. a. single. one. LOL. The second one I forgot the walls of my tent, if you can believe that!

Most recently I attended Live Oak International and as is tradition I forgot something… I had designed some new equestrian pieces just for the show and was going to premiere them there with a show special price. I even printed up a little sign. Can you guess what I forgot?

Yep the brand new Tassel Tale necklaces – *facepalm*

Oh well, I guess they will make their debut on the website in April instead. The show was a ton of fun. I met some new customers, had old ones come to visit and saw some beautiful Ocala countryside and glorious horses in the sunshine. Could not have been better!

I look forward to attending again next year – but if you don’t follow me on facebook or instagram here are some of the pics you may have missed

Roadtripping

This past week I have been visiting family in both Arizona and Nevada – this trip is all about Dads. My father in law was turning 70 in Phoenix so we spent the holiday weekend with him then drove up to Vegas to spend a couple days with my Dad 🙂 Of course we took the opportunity to stop at  a couple places along the way

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You know I didn’t spend time out here and not pick up some awesome Turquoise.

For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappin

It is a perfect companion for those who travel a lot. It protects them from thefts, accidents, or any unwanted incidences, bringing good fortune to the owner.

Historically, Turquoise is credited with being the symbol of friendship, saying that “he, or she, who owns a Turquoise will never want for a friend.”

Missing my critters now so I am looking forward to getting home and making some turquoise jewelry
