i've been photographing and editing all day - yawn, quite frankly! i do enjoy taking photographs but then i reach a point were i'm just going through the motions; not quite concentrating on the simple enjoyment of looking at what i'm taking, just making my way through a pile of jewellery and not necessarily getting the best photos that i can do. so hopefully i haven't done that today....i had a surprise day off due to my primary school doing a recording with the whole school today and thus my wee singers being needed for that....it does mean that thursday - my usual day off - will be spent at work instead but never mind! so i thought i should really make use of it.
lots of earrings. some of these i've made really recently (days ago) and some, over the past few months. what do you think? i can see lots of complementary and contrasting colours when i look at these as a whole, and i'm quite enjoying that. colour is such a huge inspiration to me, i do enjoy playing around with it - either in making it flow along from one hue to another:
or in juxtaposing complementaries with one another - usually secondaries or tertiaries rather than primaries, but i do love the odd primary combination here and there - see these lemon and royal blue earrings!
quite a soothing combination i find.
i've also added a couple of rings, which is a new item i've been selling at my monthly craft fair - these are so fun to make, just playing around with shots of colour.

it's been good to repopulate my little folksy shop as well - it's been neglected for too long. i'm never quite sure about whether i should have the two shops going - it's that mental toss up between knowing that whilst there are not as many buyers on folksy, there aren't as many sellers either - etsy is swamped with both. it's a little easier to list on etsy too so i usually end up just going straight there....however, i am making a point of trying to fill up little folksy. 14 items so far, where as there were 5 this morning. not bad for one evening!
what have you created this week?
