Wishing For Daylight

I really want to take proper photos of these necklaces I've put together!  Unfortunately, no matter how much artificial lighting I create, it is no comparison to natural daylight.  I will just have to wait until tomorrow, but here is a sneak peek for you all.  I had a lot of fun, after thrifting some great vintage chains at a local antique store.  I was inspired immediately to create these Talisman Charm Necklaces.  The pendants took a lot of time to cut, solder, and hammer, but I loved every minute.  I created some interesting Pyramid inspired brass and copper charms, a copper bird charm, and some brass feather charms as well.  I had fun adding turquoise beads and some shell beads too.  And, I think the repurposed chains are a fun touch.  They should be in the shop tomorrow, better lighting permitting.




P.S. I wore the bird necklace today and got a huge complement on it while out school shopping!

Happy Weekend All.

I love recycled anything. Your use of textures with the shiny metals and stone is striking. And I agree -- sometimes natural daylight is the only way to photograph jewelry and fine art well. I'm over from The Weekend Creation Hop. I have a writing blog. Hope to see you hop by!

The hammered texture of the copper is lovely and makes it much more interesting.
