I sat at the porch last night, and wire-wrapped this necklace together. It was so nice being outside, it was a beautiful and cool night. I used the beautiful seafoam green salwag pearls that I purchased from Terrestrial. I threw in 2 Tourmilated Quartz ovals and a Cape Amethyst nugget. I usually like to pull in colors from the pendant. Anyway, simply necklace.
Now let's talk about photography.
I am so bored with my photography lately! I *love* jewelry designers that add some props to their photos!
For example, ExecuteMe uses beautifully lush plant life in her photos.
Or kalliART who sometimes uses this creative jewelry tree-
I like how she also photographed this necklace on a white wall with clips and wire- and the little accent of bird, is unique and creative! Love it!
It's a tough call because sometimes props can make it or break it! Sometimes they are too busy and it takes away from the item you're photographing. I don't want to step on toes and use any examples, but I know you know the types of photographs I'm talking about.
SO- Here's my dilemma. Help me think of a new and creative way to photograph my jewelry to make it pop. Leave comments in this post and I'll pick a random winner on Monday July 21. Winner, you ask?? The beautiful wire-wrapped abalone shell necklace will be yours if I pick you!
