Just finished these and one other pair of earrings, and will be listing them later this afternoon. These are 14k with citrine, and the others are a very cool sterling/gold mix.
I know my collection is short on earrings, but I’ve been having a lovefest with rings lately. Now I have some earring ideas beginning to percolate, and I’ll go with them. I find that forcing myself in a direction I’m not eager to go yields lesser quality work.
Seeing my pieces photographed often leads me to make further adjustments to them, and I originally had these earrings with little pearls instead of citrine. Now I see I’ve left a bit of polish on the right side of the top earring, and I’ll need to clean that up a bit and reshoot. I don’t like to clean up details like that in photoshop, because it doesn’t feel honest; I want the customer to see exactly what they are getting. I don’t have any qualms, however, about cleaning up the red paint mark on the rock background. I think anything reminiscent of blood in my photos is probably not a good idea.
