The Shop: Fine Jewelry Photoshoot

Today was a nice cloudy day outside, giving me good conditions for re-shooting some of my fine jewelry pieces in the shop. The clouds give a nice cover to the sun’s bright rays, while still giving me nice enough lighting for some shots. I decided to re-shoot some of my items because I’m not liking the plain white background that I chose to show case my finest items. I thought that they needed a little nature vibe to them to bring out their true colors and let them shine. I think they came out pretty good considering I’m only shooting with an Iphone!

Here’s a few of before and afters, I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to leave me a comment of what you think of the new backgrounds as well! I love having public feedback to work with, it really helps me know what people are looking for when deciding on whether or not to click on an item.

Fashion: Spring/ Summer Finds

With the arrival of summer coming up, I thought I would share some Etsy finds that I simply adore. Get ready because the first day of summer is officially June 21.

According to Pantone, the Spring/ Summer trending colors of 2013 are Dusk Blue, Lemon Zest, Emerald, Tender Shoots, Linen, Monaco Blue, Nectarine, Poppy Red, African Violet, and Grayed Jade.

Emerald was chosen as 2013’s color of the year, and I used this guide to help with my choices. I do favor the simple/ minimalist and vintage look, and it really reflects in my Etsy finds…
