Dance and Swing



We had all the little ones around last weekend for a family reunion and I was showing the girls (10, 12 and 14) a little more about jewelry making. After they left I went on a binge of earring making. I'm stating to stockpile for some reason. Anyway, these are a few more of the chandeliers (a couple I did a while ago)I'm making, but I'm really into creative dangles that I'm calling in my head "dancers". That's what I love to see exciting and unique long earrings do, and those are the ones that always catch my attention -- those that dance and swing.

Oddly, I haven't done very well with photographing jewlery, especially not with my digital. We finally took most of these with a 35mm and if ever I decided to try to sell them online I'll get rid of all the shadows and unprofessional positioning, cut off words and the like. The one on the bottom I just laid on my scanner - couldn't get it straight for anything, but it certainly picked up the detail much better.

So, enough, I've got to get back to writing. My deadlines are looming and as usual I'm tripping. LOL

Hi Peggy,

I LOVE your blog!

With regards to the jewelry, have you tried photographing against a black background? (Felt or velvet)

Keep on creating!

Thank you, Dee!

Peggy, Did you make all of those? Wow, you're good.

Peggy said...

Shelia,
Yes, and (LOL) this is the tip of the iceberg. I make jewelry when I'm anxious ...
