I finally decided to just suck it up and photograph some earrings. I don't know how far to go back in time though, so I ended up just photographing my most recent ones.
My bed is pressed up against my window, so I just pulled up the blinds and photographed on top of my black jersey sheets. I tore a sheet of stationary from a set I picked up in Korea and poked two holes in them with a stud. Fancy, I know (:
I didn't have a macro lens: the photographs with the black showing are the 'original' photos, the ones without are cropped. These aren't color corrected, just resized.
Without further ado...
I did a bead trade with HQCD's Lisa and she sent me these lovely brown faceted beads from Swarovski:
I don't wear a lot of brown, but these are just too pretty.
brown swarovski beads, bronze bow connectors, MOP hearts
This is a strange pair and adventurous pair. They move well.
coral roses, bronze elements, MOP hearts, swarovski 4mm bicone
These are my favorite. They're very simple, and remind me of spring.
MOP birds, pink coral roses, glass beads.
These are cute and simple.
MOP leaves, coral roses, swarovski 4mm bicones, brass elements.
I bought these awesome cubic zirconia gems. They're cone shaped, and amazingly shiny. They're hard to pair things with because they are just too... bling-bling? LOL.
Pink faceted squares, silver textured bows, 4mm bicones, cubic zirconia crystals
Pictures don't do them justice : (
They're on this pair too:
gold leaves, pink coral beads, cubic zirconia crystals
These look more... vintage? to me. I love the color combination.
brass elements, pink coral roses, teal leaves
These are actually reconstructed. Once in awhile I go through my collection and take apart earrings I don't really wear/like. These had green rondelles on them. I switched them out for pink ones and added silver chains and petite hooks, plus the crystal hanging off the bottom.
Always be open to change!
