So I was doing my gallery sitting yesterday and got out a few of what I've tended to call 'tacky' displays for necklaces. They have drawers full of them for people to use. I started to play around with the jewelry I have at the gallery, and DAMN. All of a sudden you can see the work I have on display! Sometimes I feel like such an idiot, but this is a learning game. Look at this, for example:
granted, it was taken with my Android in full daylight.
The piece on the right is mine, and it's in the front window of the gallery. I don't know if you can see the mishmosh just behind it (the collection of chains and copper pieces), but THAT is the display I made for this show. My theme for this show was 'Cirque' and all the pieces had a Cirque feel to them, and the display was a handmade serpent. But you can't see anything! As soon as I started to take them off the serpent (I love my serpent, whaaa!), everything was visible.
