Hello hello!

So finally I can show you the photos from the photoshoot David and I did last week.
I had been working on a very large necklace and was thinking about how I wanted to show it in photos. It needed to be very fancy since the necklace is far from an everyday piece, and I wanted the sharp, intricate shapes of it to really stand out.
As in the photos for my first Tangled Triangle necklaces I wanted to go for the old times movie actress/diva look because I think the clash between that soft, flirty and composed feeling makes a really interesting background to the wild and strong expression of the necklaces.
This time I really wanted to turn myself into one of those old time diva ladies and not be afraid of crossing the line of my own comfort zones.
Let me explain; I feel quite safe infront of the camera most of the time. I have easy to smile and goof around and think it's really fun to be able to showcase my own jewelry from time to time. But here I wanted to go a little bit further and forget about "me" and become a full blown Rita Hayworth-y persona oozing of strength, playfulness and a "I don't care what you think of me" atitude and just own the photoshoot.

We needed two photoshoots to get that because the first day just didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. I was still just me and the composition of the photos wasn't at all what I wanted.
When David and I work together like this it's really a collaboration. He sets the light, I plan out the photos and we talk about how I want the necklaces to be positioned in the frame. Then he takes a few photos, we look through them together and from there we know what works and what doesn't.
It takes a while, but it's so fun, and so rewarding when I later sit down to edit the photos and realise I've been a part of all the aspects from making the jewelry piece, planning the photoshoot, modeling the necklace, taking photos of it and editing it into what you see here now.
A clash between two strong extremes: The old timey movie diva and the sharp and wild necklaces that make The Tangled Triangle series.
All of these are listed in the shop and you can click the links under the photos to get to each necklace.
The very large, grey necklace is just amazing and took me over 12 hours to finnish and is made of more than 6 metres of wire.
There are no two alike so wearing a Tangled Triangle Necklace is wearing a piece of art around your neck.
