After my last experience of shooting outdoors, with its various challenges of wind, sand and salty dogs, I have now decided to paint some backdrops so occasionally I can photograph in my studio. I found these fabulous driftwood pieces on my beach walks and painted and sanded them to keep and show the texture of the wood in vibrant shades of marine greens, cyan blues, smokey slates and flamingo reds! I think they will showcase my jewellery to perfection.
I spent this morning on the beach photographing new work. It was windy and the dog kept charging off, but we managed to get this shot. I found this wonderful piece of wood that had been battered and weathered by the sea and the elements on the beach by an ice cream hut! I think it made the perfect backdrop to showcase the jewellery. The necklace is made with a pendant of sea glass, pearl and rock crystal balancing from brushed silver hollow tube.
Happy New Year to all my customers. Thank you for your support and purchases. You have been amazing and keep inspiring me to keep behind my bench designing and creating. I love the fed back I get, the contact with you and those visiting my studio. Thank you. This week I have been on the beach photographing my bangle for Cornwall Living magazine editorial. After lots of editing, this is the final photo. Pretty pleased with it!
These are my latest pendant designs that I have been making in the studio. They are made using brushed silver hollow shapes, peacock coloured labradorite rectangles and freshwater pearls. The other brilliant thing is that they all come on adjustable silver chains so you can wear at any length. Not yet on the website, but do drop me a line if you are interested.
Sally sells sea shells on the sea shore...My beautiful bangle with aqua coloured sea glass, crackled rock crystal bead and coin freshwater pearl on silver D shaped wire to be found on the beach and online. Despite the the distraction of my dogs and the weather being wet and misty I really enjoyed photographing on the beach today. If you look closely you can see the sea spray on the sea glass.
