New Photos for Sihaya Design Jewelry

I have been working on new photographs for the gorgeous one of a kind Jewelry of Sihaya Design Jewelry created by the talented Christina Allen Page.  I have had the pleasure to watch her Jewelry Line grow from a hobby to a successful business so this collaboration was very special for me.  Christina sent a few pieces from her Autumn 2012 Collection so that I could take self-portraits wearing the pieces in my own style.  Here are a few of the finished photos.  I am wearing the "Silk Roads" Necklace-a beautiful piece celebrating the colours of Fall and the turning of the foliage.  It includes fresh water pearls, worked copper set with glowing crystals and finished with a unique patina, and delicate vintage glass leaf beads that have been wire-wrapped in copper.
I like to tell a story with each piece of jewelry rather than have my photographs be a straight product shot.  For this piece, I went back in time and took inspiration from the Renaissance, Old Masters Paintings, the Pre-Raphaelites Art and the colours of Autumn. I have more pieces to photograph so watch this spot.  Please visit Christina's Etsy Shop Sihaya Designs Jewelry to see her many other Autumn designs as well as other unique pieces.  They are divine!
Wishing you all the Best!

Oh, Merle, these photos are so beautiful! They compliment the colors of the necklace really well too!
