My least favourite job

I enjoy designing and making pieces, but if there's one thing I don't enjoy it's photographing them.

Why? Well it's difficult to get the colours to look right, when they can vary depending on the light source, and how do show when a piece sparkles a you move, when a photograph is static?

And then, what do you have in the background? And just how far away do you have to move the clutter that normally sits on my dining table?

Well here's my latest piece - lapis lazuli cubes with Swarovski crystals - made in time for my coming craft fairs:
  • Saturday 29th October at Cambourne church
  • Friday 18th November at Netherhall School's shopping evening
  • Saturday 19th November at Bar Hill PreSchool's Winter Fete
