Rainbows of Earrings

November 25, 2012


I finished 8.5 dozen earrings in time for the Soroptimist Extravaganza Sale!  Sold quite a few!  I love wearing bright, lightweight, colorful earrings & get loads of compliments when I do!  You can too!!  I’ll have more time to add these to my  Zibbet Shop  in January, but if you’d like a pair or two before then just send me a note & tell me which ones you’d like.

If you need something to do in Portland OR, Dec 7 & 8, come see all my new earrings!  Hope to see you at the Multnomah Arts Center, in the Gym!  Until then, I have hundreds more to finish up and add to these collections!!

After a week of reclaiming my house after Christmas & New Year celebrations I am finally putting earrings into my on-line shop.

I’ve been talking about adding earrings for months but always dread the photo edits as I am terrible at photographing glass!

When adding merchandise to my on-line shop I’m told I need multiple shots so my customer can appreciate all angles of the object as if they were holding it in their hands.

You already know that when I make earrings (or any jewelry for that matter) I cannot make just one set because there are so many variations to be explored.

So you see the same earring in at least 3 different lengths…

…and 3 different angles for the camera.  I generally shoot  7 or more different angles, then choose the easiest to edit!

Then I change to horizontal texture instead of vertical …Oh I forgot I sold out of that style…..

So I move on to a different color and style because I can’t take more of the same today….

The Pantone color for 2010 is Turquoise, so let’s go with that…Turquoise and Cobalt dichro.

Turquoise and Purple dichro.

Turquoise and Silver dichro.

Then I start over again with different lengths.  And different ear wires!

I have a great photographer in Hood River, Denise at Photosensitive Portraits, but it means packing everything up and driving down into town.  In retrospect, that would’ve been faster!  Got any time next week Denise?

Wearable Art

‘Wearable Art’, ‘Personal Adornment’, whatever we choose to call it, ‘Glass Jewelry’ is FUN to wear!  Bright, vibrant, it has weight and feels good against our skin.  Bracelets, pendants, earrings, barrettes and ponytail holders come in sets or as individual pieces.

I get so many compliments when wearing it.  Try it, you’ll like it!
