The real key has been figuring out how to take better photos. It's funny, but I've had more far trouble photographing earrings than any of my other jewelry, especially for Etsy.
To make it worse, the stone backgrounds which look fine for photos here on my blog just didn't look right in my Etsy store, where most of the more polished photos seem to have white-on-white backgrounds. Something I've had terrible trouble with.
So here a few of my new shots that I took yesterday; what do you think?

And here's a screenshot of my updated Etsy store. I love how all of the backgrounds (except my two tutorials) match - a much cleaner look than I've had previously. And the earrings actually show up reasonably well in the thumbnails! I consider that in itself a breakthrough. What do you think?
I love vintage doilies and you've used them here to great effect! Your updated shots are fantastic - my favorite is the Night Lantern earrings - they would stand out anywhere, but against that doily - they positively glow.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I've always liked these, but the old photos definitely did not do them justice.Delete
Beautiful! Quinacridone Rose is my favorite -- I love the colors, and I love the way the earrings look on the lace! It mimics the beadwork design without overwhelming it.ReplyDelete
Thank you! That's the response I was hoping for! I've never tried a textured background of any sort before, so these were a total experiment.ReplyDelete
I'm very fond of the first pair in particular! They'll sell fast!ReplyDelete
