~ Pictures on a Cloudy Day ~

The sun just refuses to come out! I have been itching to take pictures of my new designs, so I figured I would just try it and see if I can add enough light to the pictures just through Picasa. I even used flash for some of the pictures. *gasp* That's right. I did it. I used flash when taking pictures of crystals. Guess which pictures I took with flash....answers will be revealed at the end of this post.

First, Swarovski crystal butterfly stud earrings in new colors! I have other colors too, but I think these looks the best as studs.

This picture is a little bit grainy...from the post processing...

Simple and classic champagne color.

I made a couple necklaces inspired by ying-yang symbol. Of course, there's the black and white version...

Then the fun version :)

I really like how this picture turned out.

Lastly, a moon and star necklace. I suddenly felt the urge to do this one in midst of doing the ying-yang necklaces. I tied the chain to the moon pendant instead of using a bail for a sleek, simple look.

This picture, I probably have to redo. can you guess which pictures I took with flash?? Basically, all the ones with Yuki is done with flash (FYI, Yuki is the name of my mannequin). I am actually quite surprised that it turned out ok. Ok, so I cheated a little bit since I made the picture black and white. So, here's a look at the raw image... How's the post-processing? Is it too much?

I think the sun may come out tomorrow. I am going to hopefully make a bracelet and maybe earrings tonight so I can take advantage of the sunlight tomorrow. The dreaded winter will be here soon. I miss the sun already!
