I hope you are enjoying the beginning of Spring and that flowers are starting to bloom on your side of the hemisphere! :) I want to apologize for the lack of new products posted on my Etsy shop. The new items are pilling up, I just don't have any sun to make my photoshoot, literally! It has been gray and dull for weeks now in Montreal and whenever we get a bit of sun, I'm always at work. And obviously, by the time I get back home, sun is gone. We still have our scarves and hats here in Montreal as the temperatures are unusually low for Spring. And my umbrella is my new best friend….
Yep, you figured that one out, forget the second photoshoot for the new wedding necklaces for now. I wanted to have the photoshoot outside under the blooming trees but there's not even a leaf bud in the trees yet….! So, can we have a rain check on the rain…?!! It has been raining on and off for almost a month now… feels more like Fall than Spring, let me tell you…
Why not use a lithgbox then you might ask? It's not that I can't use one, simply my items are very small and to achieve all the angles that you see, I found it best to use a simple background and not have a restrictive access to the ring. Plus, there is the aspect that my studio is quite small for now. I can't wait to move to a bigger apartment and have a room dedicated only to Kirameku.
With all that, I must admit it has been a hard week for Kirameku. Also I finally had long awaited replies from craft fairs I've applied to and when they informed me of the price of their tables, I simply fell off my chair. Well, I guess those fairs won't be for this year… I was really looking forward to those fairs but those prices are so not in our budget! I am still waiting for other fairs to open to submit Kirameku, hopefully we'll have better luck there. Fingers crossed, my goal is to attend at least 3 craft fair for this year.
On the bright side, Kirameku is finally getting up to speed with technology! :) I switched to a brad new smart phone last week-end and I love it! It's a bit confusing, but I'm getting the hang of it, you know with the apps changing all the layouts and responsive websites. I'll be able to share with you more pictures of Montreal as I'm now equipped with a great camera on this cellphone. I'll also be able to tweet some live feed, how cool is that? :)
I'm ending my tray toned article with a punch of colour. Here is the latest model that was listed, the Hot Pink Stardust Ring. It was supposed to be listed in summer but I just loved it too much and couldn't wait to share it with you! :)
Also, I have good news. For all of you who loved the Smoked Azzuro Berry, you'll be more than happy to know that I could get my hands on a fews strings f this model that was discontinued at one of my suppliers. I couldn't find much, as they were once again in liquidation and it's a shame, but as soon as I have a bit of light, I'll list it!
So stay posted and don't forget to pamper your Mom next week-end! :)
