Have you ever tried to do a photo shoot with a helper? How about a four legged helper? Every time I set my stuff out to start photographing, our helpful cat, Coco Chanel, just always has to be right there sniffing and being a part of the action. She is such a funny cat.
These earrings started out with a vintage gold filigree finding that has a vintage mother of pearl mosaic piece that was a never used piece which was purchased through ebay. They have been glued to the filigree setting and than are attached with 14 kt gold filled jump rings and lever back earring findings.
I've been trying to get some earrings up on my blog per a viewers request, but just haven't been able to until now. Although there is only this one style at this point I will try to add more in the days ahead. It is much more time consuming, now that I am editing all of the photos before posting them, working part time, a contributor on the Junk Market Style site, working on projects for the JM site, designing and creating jewelry, a wife, mom to a busy 14 year old daughter, as well as trying to wash the clothes and clean the house when I have time. Ha! The lives we women try to maintain. It's crazy. So please be patient and don't give up on me yet.
Here's a side note for my Junker friends that follow my blog.
Note the awesome chippy aqua vintage wood plynth block that I've used for my photo shoot. This was a great find, as I use it in my homes decor when I'm not using it for photography.
In the top two photos the velveteen muted gold piece of fabric was purchased at the same Occasional sale that I bought the great little girl photo I have shared with you all in the previous post. These great items I found is what I love about combining junking and jewelry design. The vintage feel of my jewelry is just set off best with the warmth of old pieces.
