My jewelry is been picked for a blog!

My wedding jewelry is now featured on Misscheviousdesigns blog for Wedding Ideas! If you would like to see what she said, click here. I am so excited about this. I loved making these earrings and to have someone love it enough to add it to her blog so that others might want it is wonderful. I am starting to get somewhere!

And, I now have the secret of making good pictures - to make your gems and crystals sparkle, use LED lights. Those lights with light up anything that sparkles. That's the jeweler's secret to making those wonderful pictures of sparkling jewelry. LEDs!

Now I have them too! And, my  pictures look so much better for it, you can really see the detail and the actual colors of the gemstones and the luster of the pearls. I only but the best, so it helps to have the lighting to show off what I have.

These are not the earrings chosen, but another example of some of the earrings I have for weddings on my web site.

My pictures are starting to get better

I'm starting to take better pictures finally. Its been really tough getting there though. My health hasn't been great, which makes it really hard to get things done; so I set myself with a goal of I at least have to take pictures of 5 items every day and at least I must edit them and then upload 3 or four of them every day. But I think some of these are pretty good:

I think I'm getting there, but with so little sleep; its tough to get into making new jewelry. I have so many ideas - but I'm so frustrated by not having the energy to make them. I keep telling myself that I'll get there, but its getting harder to keep going and not get depressed and give up. I really want this business to work. I know I have good ideas and whenever I wear what I make everyone loves them. I just have to figure out how to take good pictures and descriptions and then get good marketing.

It just takes so much energy that I don't have right now. I has to get better - I don't see how it can get any worse. Oh well, I don't want to sound so depressed right now, but I hope the doctor's can come up with something, anything, that can help me with my pain and fatigue, so that I can work.

I want my business to work so much - this is my dream!
