A new addition to my repertoire: photography!

A new addition to my repertoire: photography!
This summer marks my 17th year as a full time jewelry artist. I have experiences both  ups and downs, and have been both accepted and rejected to the best shows into the country.  I have essentially been a part of this profession my entire adult life. I am now at the stage of my career that traveling to a show every weekend is no longer a possibility because it gets harder and harder to leave my young son behind.  I’ve cut back doing as many shows as I used to do, but that leaves my family at a financial deficit. I have been faced with the dilemma, “what next?” Its created a lot of inner turmoil. After a little soul searching, I realized I actually have another talent that I can fall back on—photography! Jewelry Photography! Over the course of my career, jewelry photography has become my hobby out of need, but over the course of time, I’ve actually gotten good at it. I learned to take some pretty exceptional images, to the point where this year, I actually used my images to apply to several shows, and got accepted to one of the most competitive shows in the country, the American Craft Exposition. I have no plan on quitting as a jewelry maker, in fact, I see jewelry photography as an extension of what I already do.
I’ve added a page to this site to show some examples of what I can do, and I’m willing to work for very competitive rates. I’m also capable of doing postcard design, line sheets, banner design, or anything thing you may need to have designed, I’m your girl…I know the importance of great images, and I know what it takes to make them!
