Coming Early Next Week



So here's some of the pieces I have been working on. I made the top one really long so it can be worn as one long necklace or doubled up to look like two. The bottom one is freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals. Very feminine, could even be considered bridal wear. As for the pearls, I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but the freshwater pearls aren't smooth. They have ridges and aren't perfectly round. I think it looks kind of neat and my mom does too, but it makes me wonder if it would turn people off. If they would rather have perfectly round glass pearls instead. What do you guys think? What's your preference? Anyways, I've taken the product photos, now I have to wait until Sunday to take the model pictures. So I'll be listing them on Sunday or Monday. Also, sometime this weekend I'm going to get some more supplies. Yay! So there will be even more pieces to come!

These are beautiful and your photography of the items is too. I absolutely love the im-perfectness of the pearls...reminds you that they are organic and not just globs of glass.

Well I'm glad that others like the uneven-ness (is that a word?) of the pearls too! I was thinking maybe I was a weirdo! I love how you worded it BeFree! So eloquently put! Joy, doing my pics can be a pain for me too! Here in Tucson, AZ you have to take pics in the morning because you'll fry in the heat if you try in the afternoon! And I'm not an early bird! Gotta do what ya gott do!
