What I Want and a Little Rant

I have spent the last two days working on my photos because someone told me that they weren't good enough, and no, not Trunkt. I all ready know that my pieces do not match their style though they are a lovely site. I loved my pics before, but like I said last time, I've always wanted to use that fancy black background that you see in all the books. Let me know what you think of this pic. These are my Sterling and Bronze Cascading Earrings that can be found in my shop.

So, the whole pics not good enough thing made me realize as a designer who specializes in uncommon jewelry metals that I have to have everything else, i.e. pics, descriptions, style, better than everyone else because it isn't always going to be the metal that sells the product. I'm determined to have the most awesome pics, the most awesome packaging(which I'll have to show a pic of sometime), and the most awesome everything else. I have to for my business to survive. I want my business and my jewelry to be KNOWN(not yelling just emphasis). I love each and every piece I create or else I couldn't put them in my shop. I want them to be craved, wanted, and desired. Is that so much to ask for? It's a shame copper gets such a bad rap.

On a side note, I am no longer a garden serial killer. I picked my first cantaloupe from my garden yesterday, and my largest pepper is almost ready. I'll have to remember to take a pic before I eat them. lol. Can I just say how proud of myself I am? It's the little things in life...

I really like the photo-especially the way the shiny surface reflects the piece.

I also think your packaging is very nice and I already want your whole shop! Lol! I am so happy with the pieces I have--and they were my first copper purchases!

Wow! A cantalope! I was never able to grow anything that big! We've given up our garden because we don't get good enough sun. It also takes until Sept. for things to start ripening and by then we could potentially get a frost!

I like the new pics a lot...very sleek....

oh I have a catalog that you should contact, your jewelry would fit perfect there....

now I just have to found where I put in in this disaster (by disaster, I mean house)

I think the new photo looks great. (But then, I also liked your old photos!)

I was really happy with my photos at the beginning of the summer and now I feel like they need to be improved. The photography is my least fav. part of the whole process.

Yay, cantalope!

Copper does get a bad rap! I have a newer blog, but I just finished a
post on copper...it's a fantastic metal and not enough artists (including me) use it! But i have it everywhere in my house. Congrats on the article!
