Feast your eyes

My friend Julie the Mermaiden has been after me to take more macro close-up shots of my bead weaving and embroidery. So the other day, when I casually laid this necklace over this box to get it out of the way while I was photographing other items, I realized that this was the sort of picture Julie wanted to see. So I took it! Beautiful details. Beautiful prop. Deep black background. Not to toot my own horn, but I think it's an amazing photo. And I got some even closer, but less fancy shots as well. Visit the listing for Ghost Portal Gothic Choker to see them all! Then wander over to the rest of Handmade Jewelry by Erthe Fae Designs to see what else I've been listing.

I'd chat more, but I'm off to do a little holiday shopping at the 4th Avenue Street Fair!


  1. Is the middle piece glass? It looks great!

  2. It sure is! Vintage glass, in fact. I got the cab, the tear drops and the enlongated bicones all at a shop on Long Island that had the best vintage. Unfortunately, they went out of business :(

  3. yes! i love seeing your work up close like that! folks need to be able to appreciate the intricacy and quality of your work.
    makes me smile :D

  4. Makes me smile, too... when they actually turn out :) Don't know if I'll have time to take more fancy photos before the holidays. Starting to feel the time crunch!
