Posing.


































I have such respect for photographers. I often think something will be easy to get good pics of, then fail miserably. For my new jewelry line, I've been snapping pieces all over the house. On old red barn wood, white plank flooring, white linen, and even on the pages of books. I love the way the pieces look on the photographic images, (they pose beautifully don't they?) however I'm not sure that is proper with respects to the original photographer. Thought? This bottom photo shows the bracelet that got me started on the whole line of Sno of Sweden. I bought it for a gift and then decided I should see about being a retailer. A bit of an investment in inventory, but at least I'll have lots of samples to parade around in.  The book with the gorgeous images is called Spirit of India by Parragon Books Ltd.

  1. love the photos on the books - not sure about legality though - but hey with pinterest happening all over the place I don't know what's legal anymore or not!
    Nice jewellery - good luck!!!

  2. I think my favorite is on the red barn wood. It seems so earthy with the leather and metal. I love how strong the pieces look.

  3. What about printing off a few of your own photos and using them as backdrops. I have one like the flags one taken in India if you want to use an exotic locale.

  4. Hmmm . . . interesting study.

    Solid background pieces, like the barn wood, or even the solid of white/neutral seems to bring better clarity of the silver and leather of the jewelry . . .

    The first and last photo I liked the best . . . no doubt about it, I am going to have to purchase another piece . . .

  6. The pictures are lovely but I actually like the way the jewellery looks on the plainer backgrounds, then the focus is on the jewellery and you can see it so much clearer? Bx

  7. I actually think I like the simpler backgrounds, but it would be worth trying something with a bit of teaxture - some weathered wood or similar? Nice jewellery :)

  11. I showed my daughter the first picture you had of the SNO a few days ago. She thought they were the perfect blend of leather and silver. I too like the simpler backdrops as this jewelry is beautiful yet simple itself. Best wishes and I'm going to check out your link to your shop. Ann

  14. Very pretty! I like the silver beaded bracelet on the white background and the last image, with the dired hydrangea. There is a never-ending supply of interesting things to photograph. Congratulations on adding this line to your inventory!
