I have locked myself away for the last few days to do some jewellery making. It was about time! I seem to spend so much time blogging and photographing that I find myself neglecting my other work – and I am not just talking about domestic chores.
Here a couple of shots showing my progress. You might recognise my cat Melody in some of the brooches. Clarence and a Siamese cat (whose name I have forgotten) are also my subjects. There is also a koala from Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney.
I will show you some finished results before I put them up for sale on Etsy. If you have an Etsy shop you will know what comes next – “product photography” which I find very time consuming. I now have a tripod which helps a lot and I have made a light box ( a cardboard box covered with white paper).
