BEAUTIFUL photos...


I photograph much of my work by myself, but for jury shots or marketing, I go to the professionals! The photographer I had been using took a job in Bali with a major jewelry design company. As a result, I had to find a new photographer. I had seen Hap Sakwa's work for years and had always admired his photography style. He has a great eye for dynamic compositions and his photos have such wonderful lighting...the image seems to glow allowing the jewelry to pop. I recently sent him several of my new designs to shoot. I am thrilled with the results!


At first, both Hap and myself were baffled on how to shoot this necklace. The long straight links of the chain made it very hard to compose a photograph while the necklace laid flat. Look what he did! AMAZING!




Now I just need to start to send out press releases so these beautiful photos can grace the cover of a magazine! ;)

The help of a professional makes all the difference. Im so glad mine is "in house" because I soooo dont have the money to hire one! Really though, if I had realized that I just couldnt do it on my own YEARS ago I might have just saved my pennies and hired someone. It makes my stuff look as good as it smells.
