Sneak peek: Future Victorian Emerald Necklace!

Emerald_necklace

Woo hoo, I'm very excited my Future Victorian Emerald Necklace turned out so well on the first print… Deciding on chain lengths now. I like that it just grazes the collarbone, but my neck is thinnish, so I might want to make the chains a little longer to accommodate different size necks.

Crystalline Prototype Arrived

So I got some prototypes in from Shapeways today… and they look awesome! I'm creating a bib necklace with crystalline forms, and am testing out a piece of it for thickness… The photo doesn't do it justice as it doesn't show the dimensionality… I'm really excited — it's both bold and delicate.

Beautiful new jewelry photography

I recently had some professional photography done for my jewelry. Looking at the cd of images, these first ones are so luscious. We didn't do shots like this of the whole collection, but now I'm thinking it would be a good idea — they show the pieces in such a lovely way.

I did get very straightforward shots of the whole collection, like this…

And this…

And yes, I have Rockstar Diamond and Mod Moire Pearl pendants now, with a Future Victorian Emerald necklace coming soon!

We also did more straightforward shots of the whole collection on a surface like this.

Guess it's time to order some more of those luscious ones at the top of the post.

Last week I went to Dana Davis' Oakland studio to get some more professional shots of my jewelry. He's so efficient and skilled… it was a lot of fun, and they really turned out well.
