I was photographing some new jewelry to add to my Etsy shop, and I decided to try and create a gif of this moonstone ring. I was trying to show off the way it shimmers. What do you think? It’s my first time creating a gif of jewelry.
Don’t forget to check out the Urban Street Bazaar this weekend in the Oak Cliff Arts District of Dallas. I won’t be showing there (this time) but it is one of my favorite shows to visit and participate in. Family and dog friendly!
My next upcoming show is going to be the Etsy Dallas Spring Bash. These shows are always a lot of fun - it’s a party you can shop at! They usually have make and take projects that are kid friendly, and they often have a silly photo booth where you can get your photo taken. I hope to see you there!
Those giant crystals of gypsum (CaSO4) probably grew to their massive size really slowly in a bath of hot water and dissolved minerals. Now that the water has been pumped out by industrial miners, scientists are free to explore…with the help of some ice-cooled orange jumpsuits: The caves average a termperature of 118 F, and 90 % humidity.
Beautiful photos! This looks like something straight out of a science fiction movie.
I recently finished on of the biggest projects I’ve been working on for a long time. I had a commission for a wedding and engagement band based on some inspiration photos the customer had sent me and using stones she picked out. It was quite a challenge, one of those projects that seems to fight you every step of the way. While I was working on it I kept thinking I never wanted to do another project like it again. But now, after seeing how happy the customer was when she saw her wedding band set, I might change my mind. You can see more photos of the finished rings along with a lot of in progress shots in my flickr set: Studio.
We took a photo of Astra with the Bishop Arts Camera we found by the Soda Gallery. She was so well behaved at the show, everyone was impressed! If you want to learn more about Shilohs and our local breeder, check out their website at Sparta Shilohs.
The Dallas Urban Street Bazaar is back baby! I’m super excited about this because it’s an outdoor show and we’ll be bringing our big puppy Astra to the show with us! She turned 1 year old this month and we want her to meet lots of new people and other dogs. We hope you can come see us and say hello to Astra!
