I am trying to focus. Not on life or anything (that would be too serious), but trying to experiment with my darn Nikon camera. It's more than I can handle (or need!)

I just acquired it a few months ago. I have tried to read the (6-inch thick)  manual but I am just not familiar with all the "camera terminology". I think I need to enroll myself in a photography class but I don't have time. It's on my list of things to do before I die, but for right now, all I want to do is photograph some of the jewelry I've made and out of about 30 something pictures, these are the only ones that came out! Augh! So I will share these with you (and practice later!).

This blue & yellow floral bracelet and drop earrings were re-purposed from a broken chintzy glass necklace I found at a flea market. I added the glass cobalt and silver for a crispy spring feel. It looks great with my old yellow shirt and my favorite pair of jeans. (Martha Stewart style!)


Now in the picture below, why is flower so clear but the earrings are a little blurry? I would rather the background be blurred instead of the subject. Hmmm...DSC_0079 (2)

I just completed the following pink & pearl set. I will pack it up cutesy pooh and send it to my sister as a birthday surprise from my son. She is his God-Mother and he wanted to get her something special so I volunteered to make something special just for her.  (It's okay, she doesn't have a computer & she has no idea so don't tell her!)

No vintage re-purposing here...all new glass & silver beads. New, but with my own vintage design.


This picture below worked...I like the crispy clear subject with blurry background but I don't know how I did it!

Maybe I need to focus right now on getting some work done instead of playing...oh how I LOVE TO PLAY!
