My next investment should be photography lessons, and possibly a new camera!
I have a hard time getting my jewelry to look half as good in the photos as they do in real life. And I can't ever get anything to look like it was just thrown on to the background. I know the beautiful photos I've seen elsewhere are a result of arranging and posing, but they look natural and effortless. I promise these necklaces are really cute, but you'll just have to take my word for it!
This is a Chinook focal I bought a little while ago. I made the nest with brown speckled e-beads. I put the same beads on large jumprings, to form a chain. I thought the beads would all be on the lower side of the chain, but actually, when I wear it, the chain twists, and they kinda spiral up my neck, which I like better!
Here's a closer shot of the lovely Chinook focal...
This is another Chinook focal. I ALWAYS get a compliment when I wear this necklace. It's an old key from my stash, czech glass leaves, and inexpensive (read: Chinese) lampwork swirly beads.
Take a closer look at that focal! I'm dying to buy more stuff from Chinook, but think I should use some of what I already have first!
