Pearly Queen

Posted on: Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I’m sorry to say that my newest pearl range from last Autumn didn’t all make it online. Available in three colours of pearl, with a choice of 4 semi-precious stones each available as earrings or necklaces, this meant I had 24 items to write about, photograph and edit.

I knew they were a winning design, because I sold several sets at the Country Living Fair last December. However, because I haven’t been happy with my photos after updating my editing software last Autumn, and in particular the photos I took for this jewellery range, the poor Siren, Muse and Goddess ranges have been neglected – but no more! I have revisited these little gems and am pleased to say that I have updated, uploaded and published all 24 versions today, with all new photos to tempt you, and am pleased that now they look as lovely online as they do in real life.

Here are the updated photos, as well the Goddess range which has not been available online before.

These designs are also available and fully updated over on my Notonthehighstreet shop, too. I hope you like them as much as I do!

I mentioned the Country Living Fair last year – I have decided to do the Harrogate show again this year. Expect more information nearer the time, but I look forward to seeing you there.

More Beautiful Photos – Photo Shoot Part Two

Posted on: Sunday, July 20, 2014

As promised, here are the second set of photos from our photo shoot up in Old Town’s Wainsgate Church. This featured our second model, Chloe, wearing another stunning dress from Jessica Charleston and I must admit this is my favourite. I love the contrast of the vintage Edwardian shape when it’s actually made from latex would you believe!

Due to the high collar, I concentrated on statement earrings in burnished shades, oxidized silver and rolled gold to accentuate Chloe’s auburn hair and fair complexion. I’ll be detailing the jewellery used by both models in another post.

There were a lot of talented people who came together on the day, please check below for their details.

Wainsgate Chapel Photo Shoot – The Pictures Part One!

Posted on: Friday, July 11, 2014

You may remember my last photo shoot in Wainsgate Chapel a few weeks ago? I finally have the shots ready, which I will be sharing in a couple of posts. There’s a couple of reasons for this; firstly because there are so many gorgeous photos from Shelly (from Toast of Leeds Photography), and secondly because we two different stories from the two gorgeous models, in two very different dresses.

To find out more about who I worked with on the day, please check the credits at the end of the post.
