I'm so excited to share these new photos with you. Not all of the pieces are new to the blog-- what's new is the photography. My friend and talented photographer Jacqueline Woods visited me the other day for a photo shoot, and I love what she came up with!
Jacquie knows how to set up a great still life shot. It was so much fun to see her work -- building up just the right background, draping a piece artistically, turning it just a bit for a whole new perspective. Jacquie is owner of duBois Images, where she offers still life and event photography. Click the collage to visit her web site or go to duboisimages.weebly.com .
The other excitement for me, this week, was the arrival of my new torch from Rio Grande. I'm growing up, guys! I've been using an $8.00 plumber's torch from the hardware store to make my jewelry. It works ok for a lot of things but isn't hot enough for many projects, and it's just clumsy.
Old torch (boo/hiss):
New torch (woohoo!):
Can't wait to play!
