Meanwhile, I'm having a "20OFF30" sale* at my store, "Sharyl's Jewelry." And the truth is, that one of the reasons why I began participating in "i heart macro" last year was so that I could improve the macros I took of my jewelry. So to combine all things into one this weekend, I'm going to show a few of the photos from my shop. Some old, some new...
This is one from about a year ago.
It's one of my favorites from that time period.
Nothing is edited here,
or in any of these photos.
The effect is just the result of an odd bit of natural light coming though a sheer window curtain.
As is often the case, the photo is so close-up,
it only captures part of the earrings.
(Normally $20, now with coupon code $16US)
"i heart macro" #13: "Reflection of Me?"
(I never noticed until I had finished this post
and was placing my entry on the "i heart macro" page...
but I think I see a reflection of myself in these beads!
One year after the photo was taken
A very recent one, added for Fall collection.
Handmade brass dangles by yours truly.
This one was taken using my light tent.
(Normally $23, now with coupon code $18.40US)
Simple beaded bracelets,
but I like the natural light in this photo.
I never know whether the shadows
should be considered a flaw,
but they don't bother me much in this one.
This photo shows two bracelets together
that are sold separately.
(Normally $14 each;
now with coupon code $11.20 each)
This is the focal bead from one of my necklaces.
It's interesting to me to look at the jewelry
more from the viewpoint of photography than jewelry design.
The light here is so bright that the pale blue crystals
on each end are barely visible--not so good.
But I like the swirl-like reflection that appears
on the top of the large lapis bead.
(Normally $40; now with coupon code: $32US)
By next week, I hope to have my photo storage tamed and I will be "back to nature" for....
Time for a visit to Studio Waterstone
to see what photos the others
are sharing this week!
