Back to black

Today is one year since the death of Amy Whinehouse and I was listening to "back to black" on the radio and got a bit inspired to do a small tribute. I had a few items I had allready photographed that were waiting for me to list them in my store, so inspired by the song, I listed a few black jewelry designs today.

I find black to be very practical and versatile color. You can wear a black pair of earrings or bangle with basically every outfit and every color. You can wear it for a casual look or for a more dramatic evening look. You simply can't go wrong with black don't you think?

Meet my new jewelry model

Photographing jewelry is a difficult task. I often take dozens of pictures until I get the results I want. Over the years I've developed my tricks and accessories to help me get the best results. However, sometimes you just can't express the beauty of a jewelry design unless you see it on a real person.

I have been asking my beautiful sister for some time now to model for me and she finally said yes! It's amazing how different it makes some items look. I just hope everyone can stay focused on the jewelry designs and not on the pretty model :-)
Here are some "before and after" pictures. What do you think represents my jewelry better? Let me know in the comments below.

Geometric jewelry

Circle ring - geometric jewelry collection

Squarering - geometric jewelry collection

As far as I can remember, I wasn't a big fan of geometry classes. But when I entered geometry into my jewelry designs, it started to be fun. It all began with my circle ring, one of my most popular designs. It got me thinking, "why only circles? Why not try some squares and triangles in my designs!". So I did and I like it!

So even though there are many more geometric jewelry designs that are still in my studio waiting to be completed, I thought I'd share what I made so far.

Do you like geometric jewelry? Write your favorite shapes in the comments below and I might turn your suggestion into a new design.
