Yes, I've been to a shopping centre today, and it hit me: Christmas is less than four weeks away.
This year I'm making "Cherished Moments" for a few special people - personalised cameo necklaces, rings and brooches. They are a lovely personal gift and memento so I wanted to share the idea with those of you still searching for the perfect gift. Such a great present for someone close to your heart!
Hope everyone's silly season is progressing festively and there aren't too many stresses for you at this busy time of year.
Warm regards, Airdrie
Cherished Moments personalised cameos are available in 30mm x 40mm oval or 25mm square pendants on chain, or alternatively a 22m x 30mm oval brooch or ring. All you need to do is send me an email by clicking the link below or replying to this newsletter with a jpeg copy of your chosen image and I'll resize it, crop it to shape, and turn your photograph into a beautiful keepsake. Perfect for wedding shots, family photos or kids pics - I've done people's pets too! All personalised cameos are $35 (inc regular p&h). Click here to order yours!
A few tips to keep in mind for a perfect cameo picture: one or two subjects is best. A large group isn't great because once your image is resized to fit a 30x40mm cameo, a big crowd becomes a tiny & unrecognisable blur of faces. Another thing that makes for a good cameo is to ensure that the original image is taken as a portrait (longest side of the image is along the side) rather than a landscape (longest side of the image is along the bottom) shot. And lastly, uncluttered, bright & clear images of faces rather than full body shots (unless its a dramatic silhouette!) work perfectly.
Hi, I'm Airdrie, I'm a jewelry designer & stylist. Welcome to my blog - which is mainly about jewelry or photoshoots, funnily enough. I have to admit, I am a bit (OK maybe a lot) obsessed with fashion accessories - I love them! I've been designing & making jewelry (and the occasional dress/top/shorts/etc) since I was a kid, and for me, it is like breathing - its something I simply have to do.
My design name is Joolz. I had the opportunity to release my fourth collection in NYC this year during fashion week which was amazing.
I love playing around with eco-chic ideas, and my faves in the new collection are pieces made using recycled materials including antique kimono fabric, vintage kid's toys & upcycled chain pieces. You can check out my work at www.joolz.com.au
