Last week I showed you my jewellery making in progress. Here are some finished pieces. Actually, almost finished because I forgot to trim the leather thonging before I photographed them! These, as well as brooches and more necklaces, will be in my Etsy shops soon.
For those of you who aren’t Etsy sellers, there is a long process that follows the actually making of the work. It must be photographed and those images need to be made as clear as possible. I used to use interesting backdrops but was later advised that white backgrounds are best. White backgrounds draw our attention to the actual item I was told. What do you think? So last year during the holidays, I set about re-photographing every single item in my shop. It took forever and I almost succeeded in doing them all.
Once the photographs are finished and resized it is time to list the item on Etsy. This means filling in the details in a form and writing a description. One description doesn’t take long but when you have written ten you run out of words. I do, anyway.
So this is the stage I have now reached. But not quite. Because I have those other pieces to photograph first.
