I’m very excited because the Little Koo Etsy shop is in progress and I hope to have it up and running by 1st March (that’s the deadline Tom has given me)! There’s loads still to do but in the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on my photography. I’ve read loads of articles on how to take photographs of craft items (and especially jewellery), but this video was definitely the most useful. I know very little about photography but am learning so this is very much a work in progress!
Anyway, as my lovely blog readers, you are privileged to get a sneak preview of some of my jewellery items, and some of the photos that will go on the Etsy shop. I would love to hear any comments and criticisms (preferably constructive) about both the jewellery and the photography.
The jewellery is made from semi-precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals, with sterling silver clasps and ear hooks. The aim of the designs are that they are simple enough to wear everyday with any type of outfit, but will add a little colour and sparkle to your day. I use wire-wrapped loops throughout to avoid the risk that the jewellery will come apart, I want it to be durable and something that you can come back to time after time.
