My Earrings are in a Treasury!

I am so pleased! My earrings were picked for a Treasury, I hope I get new pictures taken of them before the Treasury expires, so they will really pop. But if not, at least they are up there.

But a really strange thing happened. I couldn't leave any comments in the Treasury area using Firefox. I had to go to Safari in order to do this and I don't know why. I don't know if this is a problem with Firefox or a problem with Firefox because I added the Craftomania Toolbar. If its the Toolbar, I need to get rid of it, because I really prefer using Firefox to Safari, especially since Firefox remembers my passwords for certain sites (only the ones I want). This is a real time save for me. I don't think Safari has this feature. If it did, it would be a fantastic addition!

Anyway, since I always include a picture, here is a picture of the earrings that are in this treasury. You can follow this link to see the treasury, because it is really full of pretty blues. But, if you don't want to, here are my Moonstone Filigree Earrings that are in this treasury. This is not the same picture as in the treasury. This is a picture that I took using the new lens that I bought specifically to photograph jewelry. I think it takes fantastic pictures of my earrings!

It's been way too long

Well, I'm now on TheKnot, the wedding website, where I hope to get a lot of business doing personalized wedding jewelry. I'm excited about this opportunity, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed here!

I also bought a new lens for my camera, just for photographing jewelry! Wow, did that cost a lot! But, it made a big difference in the quality of my pictures. Even I can see the difference. ☺ I'm also making new jewelry just for this market, so I've really been keeping busy here.

So, I'll end here with a picture of one of my new pieces, I'll pick the Fire Opal and Pearls Earrings this time. But, I have a lot more new pieces at my shop, you'll just have to go there to see them. Unfortunately, they haven't all been re-photographed with my new lens, but these earrings have been. As you can now clearly see, these have handmade earwires too.

Next time I write, it shouldn't be so long before I do so, but I only have so many hours in the day, and I'm still taking my health one day at a time. So, without further ado, here are the earrings -
