So I just got some fabulous news!
A while back, I applied for a juried craft show. I don’t do that too often because, well, I make jewelry and soap and candles. And candles and soap are… not that photographically impressive (since their appeal lies in the smell of beeswax, or the smell of combined essential oils that evoke things like Winter Solstice – that’s peppermint, juniper, and cinnamon, fyi – or what-have-you) and everybody makes jewelry. So, yeah, while I know my stuff is good, I also know that I’ll be up against a LOT of other people doing somewhat similar things.
That said, I know my work is good.
And, handily, the Curious Craft Collective knows my work is good, too!
I will be selling Amazon Creations – luxurious hand-made soaps and bath-bombs; pure beeswax tea lights and votive candles made with paper core wicks and set in 100% reusable metal containers; poetry-inspired and pagan-themed jewelry; and lots of other goodies – at the Curious Craft Show on Sunday, October 14th, 2012 at Jack Purcell Community Centre, from 11am to 4pm.
Wish I could come and see your creations. Pimping this on Tumblr!
Thank you! 😀
I’ve got a really great photographer taking pictures of a big heap of my jewelry, with the Plan being to throw all of it up on Etsy at once, allowing me to open my online jewelry store immediately after the Curious Craft Show and kind of get things moving from there.
So you WILL be able to see my creations… in about a month. 😀
 This will probably mean spending two or three days *before* the show uploading pictures and descriptions and information and then putting everything in the “edit” mode until after the show is done.
Excellent! I’ll link to your store then as well.
I take my own Etsy photographs and you can tell. I should spend more time on them, but I’m too impatient.
If you end up with great pics of stuff you sold at Curious Craft, you could offer similar items as custom orders.
You’re a sweetie! 😀
I suck at photography.
That said, I may be able to do a better job if I stick the camera on a tripod. My girlfriend has both (tripod and camera – my own camera had a batery explode in it and is definitely kaput), so I will give this a try with my next batch of jewelry.
Re: Custom orders: I’m definitely open to custom orders. That said, I don’t want to make knock-offs of my own one-of-a-kind stuff. That’s the trick with my jewelry. I don’t want to make two of the same thing.
I’ve seen the pictures you put up on your crafting blog, and they’re better than the ones I take, I can tell you that much. (I have a terrible time keeping the camera still, I don’t mind telling you). But, yeah. If you think a little extra time might help, why not try it and see? 🙂
