Photographing my wares

this for me is always a headache...I have never been great at taking a photo...chopping bits off / dark/shadowy...argggggggggggghhhhhh...anyway I do try my best. I got a swanky camera for xmas and I have a light box which helps loads.

Becuase I have little to no skill with the aformentioned gadget it sometimes takes me weeks to photograph is the case with the tashley tote which has been in my possession for 2 months since I made it.

Today however I cracked it and got some lovely shots: I put my camera on a tripod to avoid the shakes..and I think it worked.

The thing with me is that I am a dreamer, a romantic soul who always has her head stuck in some fashion or interior magazine cooing over the gorgeous pictures and wowing at all of the scene setups!  I like to be sold a story along with a product and a quirky shot will often make me buy something, more so than a plain simple one.

So in my little world I try my best to be stylish and interesting...and recreate a vogue/beautiful homes setup in my own way.

and this is what I came up with for : Professor Cecil Nugent!
my old trunks and suitcases fitted the Professors story perfectly ! but you'll have to visit my shop to read more about him!

Previous to this I had tried some other shots and I think you will agree the above are a marked improvement!
this one even shows the fold creases...rubbish!

...any way enough said out with old in with the new!!

so on that successful note I decided to reshoot the union jack tote the same vain:


thats all for now to put some rings into my shop...ok ok..heres a quick photo for you!

Fresh fresh fresh ideas!

Well its been a while since I last posted, mainly due to me teaching again and having limited time, but its half term and I have been beavering away...and I think you will like what I have made...

As you know I love pastel shades, and I have a tendency to stick to the same shades all the my mission, which I chose to accept was to use different colours: and this is what I came up with!

a beautiful fresh grassy green and a pure crisp white! both colours I haven't used before..

I have also used a really lovely new mould which creates large domed cabs, 1 1/2 inches across, which make fabulous oversized rings ! (so watch this space as they will be in my shop very shortly!)


 both of these shades have spurred me on to make single colour collections such as charm bracelets and multicharm necklaces-

so that folks is what I am going off to do..bye for now! x
