Getting to know you

I'm happy to say that "Kate" has been added to the shop, so check out her new and improved pictures!

As for the rest, I spent a big chunk today getting to know my new camera, and boy was it a lot of work. Somehow I couldn't get the brightness to work against my usual green wall/hydrangea backdrop, so there is a dearth of the requisite bust shots with a lot of the new pieces. I had to get creative.

This new one is "Mariel," a cluster of dyed quartz on a sterling silver chain. She's named after my cousin who was one of my very first customers! The pictures turned out well:

I have not added Mariel to the shop yet because I still need at least a couple of more pictures (I must get a bust shot in here somehow), so I need to keep working on the brightness issue with the camera.

AWWWW, I'm so touched!! Thank you for naming one of your creations after me! And it looks wonderful. I like the new backgrounds you're using too.
