To go with this great, wooden necklace
Welcome to my photo studio!
Take a box of river rock, and a nice large window for light, and you’ve got yourself a mini photo studio! I have been using our shell collection the same way.
Today my kitty cat was hanging out with me while I took some photos. Her kitty hair did pose a little problem because she laid on the black velvet I often use a background. It wasn’t anything a little packing tape couldn’t solve. Just roll a piece inside out around your hand, and it makes a great hair-picker-upper!
My mom has been busy. She crafted these earrings and necklace this weekend along with their match for a total of 2 sets of blue green necklace and earring combinations. Come see more in my Etsy store.
Don’t know why I had not thought of this before. The kids and I have had a shell collection for years. Each time we find a shell we love, we bring it home. If they had a choice, they would come home with 50 shells a day, but I try to limit it to a couple per trip. LOL !
What a fun background the bumpy shells make in photographs?! I like to use a skimming light to really bring out the textures. I will have to play with this more! It also makes me want to ask my husband to drill holes in my shells so I can make more shell jewelry! I’ll keep you posted on what we think up!
I really like these blue earrings. I made them last night. The glass beads are not exactly alike, and I love that. I think they are perfectly, imperfect. From top to bottom, these earrings measure 1 .5″
My mom has been working with beads since she was a little girl. She makes some great stuff. I want to showcase some of it here and sell it in my Etsy Store. This is one of her latest pieces. The necklace is semi-precious stone and bronze pearled beads with metal. She made some great earrings that match! Come see them at my Etsy store!
