The Pink Chick Gets Creative: Take Two

In a prior post I showed you some of the jewelry that I have been making. Well, my hobby has quickly spun out of control. I have had a couple of little shops want to meet with me about carrying some of my jewelry. My mom and sister have started carrying a few of my pieces in their shop. A few friends and I have signed up to have a booth at two local fall festivals, and I have decide to launch my own Internet store. I don't think my Internet store will do much, but I thought I would give it a try. It isn't up and running yet, but I will let you know when it is.

Now my only issue is learning how to photograph my jewelry. I can take pictures of my jewelry, but it never looks as pretty as it does in person. Jewelry is insanely hard to photograph with a point and shoot camera. I have a friend and coworker that is a professional photographer, so she gave me some great tips today. I can't wait to try them out!

I have a few pictures that turned out okay, so I thought I would share my latest creations with you. My favorite creations are actually my earrings, but I haven't gotten around to photographing those. I did take a picture of the ones that I made that I am wearing today. You will notice that many of my necklaces are red and black. That is because I am getting ready for The University of Georgia Football Season. The red in the necklaces look a little orangey in the picture, but I promise they are red.

Jen, you are going to make me go broke. By the way the necklace you sent me, I love it. Thank you so much. Truman grandmother was in the hospital and I wore it. I did not think I was going to leave the place with it. You are so creactive.
