Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More

I would be interested in hearing from others what equipment and lighting they use in photographing
their jewelry.

Hello Rachel,

Good to hear from you. Glad you like the background music. It's not mine but by Darlene and Jonathan Edwards who concern themselves mainly with spoofing other people's music. They are hi.la.ri.ous. I just could not resist putting this up.

Here is a cover from one of their cd.s in case you are interested. You can get this on Amazon.















Darlene is viewed as a pioneer of modern musical parody, having won a Grammy for BEST COMEDY ALBUM in 1961.

Hi Rachel,
Thank you for your comments... Craftsmanship is very important to me and that you can decipher that from my photos makes me very happy.
Wishing you all the best.

It's those flux fumes. A natural antioxidant. Keeps me looking young. ;-). Actually, the picture is a few years old.

That screaming into pillows seems like something I would remember, but it doesn't ring a bell. Then again, I don't have as many bells as I used to.

Could it have been in Paris or London or Amsterdam? You have me intrigued.

Hi Rachel. Sounds like me. How many years ago was that? I was in Germany a few years ago for the Schmuck exhibition in Munich. Was the Germany enamelist Bettinna Dittleman? She is the one that jumps out in my memory.

Or was it somewhere else in Europe?

When The Farrier Comes To Town

 Ian, the stable's farrier is a shy guy, but I got him to kick on his portable forge for y'all and allow us a quick peek inside his trailer. He said it's a mess inside and he's sorry about that. Lol! Like we don't know what metal working looks…See More
