Sunday Morning Coffee and Etsy - 01/18/09

Good afternoon all! Hope you're warm, wherever you are. I'm a little late today, been working on photographs of some new things, and retaking photographs that needed improvement in the shop. I'm taking a break now, and decided I'd go check out some
of the talented photographers on Etsy (in addition to my friend Andee from !WetCanvas, who will, of course, always be one of my very favorite Etsy photographers).

One of the first artists I ever put in my favorites was Irene Suchocki of Montreal. She calls her photographs 'Poems for the Eyes'. How very true! The first photo here is named 'Line of Love' a quite perfect name for her photograph of a subtle and serene single white tulip. The second photo, a hauntingly beautiful tree seemingly growing straight out of a rock is aptly named 'Time is a Tree'.

Another Etsy photographer I love is Allison Trentleman of Nature Mandalas. I've never been to Maine, but I've always wanted to go, especially to Acadia National Park. Her photos of this park are truly mesmerizing, especially the 'Moonrise' Photo. Allison's animal photos are great, too. The 'Trio of Sheep with Backup Singer' can't help but bring a smile to all who view it.

So, I'm back to my trusty camera, inspired anew. Here's my favorite jewelry photo from my attempts today - my 'Little Black Stack' with black star chrome diopside. I'm no Allison or Irene, but I'm working on it!


  1. Cheryl, What beautiful stacked rings!!! I love that star!!! amazing stone!!

  2. Cheryl, what a lovely photo show you have given us today. I'm in love with the tree! And the stone beach. I'm also in love with your stacked rings. What a beautiful piece of art jewelry!

  3. Aw, thanks, you guys! Glad you liked the photos! (and the ring, too!) One of these days I'm going to get working on my inspiration wall in my studio, and these photos will definitely be on it!

  4. Awww, smooches! :) I love this stack of rings, what a beautiful stone!
