Back to Basic Collection - Swirly Wire Earrings

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Rather slow this weekend.
Still working on one piece since yesterday when decided to divert to the Back to Basic Collection.
Here is sharing another piece for this collection - Swirly Wire Earrings.
Looking very well endowed...like pregnant and suddenly I realize how much it looks like my logo...LOL

Notice the uneven surface. Those are hammering marks.
I like to think they are added character :) 
(Just an excuse to cover up my inability to hammer evenly)
I know, some people prefer totally smooth surface.

These are tiny 3mm garnet. 
Added so the earrings don't look so boring :)
Somehow, I have problem taking pictures with dark/black background.
Pictures always turn out "unreal" or "off color".
Any idea why this is so?
Any suggestions on taking nice pictures on dark background?

Mei, those are very pretty. I love the basics. There is just something about the simplicity.

They are real nice, love them and the hammer marks.....about the pics I have the same problem and actually gave up on black background and silver...the silver reflects too much light and all looks wrong somehow.

Thank you Sandy | Gladryl.
Yeah, even without flash the silver still reflects too much.
