Dangling Aquamarines

These earrings combine some of my favourite themes:  the silver coins I make myself, this time with a heart-shaped cut out for a little romance; the contrast between the dappled surface of the coin with the smooth gloss of the creamy white pearl; the toning colours of the apatite and aquamarine stones.

This image was an experiment using my new camera to try to take better close-up photographs.  I find the photographing my jewellery the hardest part of being a maker, but the new camera – and the macro lens – has helped.  My next task is to master – or at least become familiar with – Photoshop, which so far lies untouched on my computer.  But until then, I shall have to keep pressing the button and hope it comes out well enough for me to get a good enough image to use.

    Hi Sarah,
    please allow me to introduce myself… I am Ian Dawson of Urchins Bears we are exhibiting alongside you at the Winter Gift Fayre in Truro in December. We are formulating a design for our display stand. we want to harmonise as much as possible with the stands either side and remain in keeping with the Christmas theme. To this end I was wondering if you have any photos of your stand and display so we can consider heights and widths of tiered shelving, displays and lighting etc.
    With best regards
    Ian Dawson
