Magic Jasper

The weather here has been great so I have been spending more time outside and less time in my bead studio! I am still working on pictures - many need a little tweaking in a photo program to make them just right. I have also been working on some custom requests.

Here is a new picture of a necklace with a Magic Jasper pendant. Soft shades of pink with freshwater pearls accents. All have been SOLD.

Light Box

Here is the light box my friend and I built. Amazing what you can do with cardboard, duck tape and packaging material! I am getting a bit tired of taking pictures, but I am determined to get this project done.

Picture Project

A friend came over this week and helped me to build a light box. I now have a way to take great photos of my work - no glare, reflections or shadows. My goal is to take new pictures of all my inventory in preparation for posting online in a webstore. It will be time consuming, but I think worth it in the end. And, once I am done, then I will only need to take pictures of new things as I make them.

Here is a sample of some of the ones I took today.....

See My Spring Sale

For those that missed my spring sale last weekend here is a slide show for you. The Friday evening girls nite was very fun. On Saturday Lesley worked on two new landscapes. I am sorry I did not take a few pictures of her working on them - oh well, next time! If you are a local customer of Beadware and missed the sale just send me an email or give a call to set up a personal shopping visit to my studio. The displays are not as fancy as during a sale, but the jewerly is still all available.
