Wildflower Knotted Necklace

Wildflower Knotted Necklace

I entered this shot of my Wildflower Knotted Necklace into the Makers Online Photography competition a few weeks ago and I made the short list! Very exciting. The winner was announced today – Chloe Livingstone from Little Green Shoots. Her wonderful shot of her Suede Flower Necklace in Toffee Triangles won. Congratulations!

I was so chuffed to have been in the top 27 – I’m always frustrated with my photography skills and wish that my product shots were better, so it was really encouraging to be listed with so much talent. There were some great photos in the line up, including one by my lovely Flickr friend Anna Stassen of her stunning Dew Necklace.

Another photo I loved, that didn’t make the short-list, was Linen Pincushion by Namolio. The original photo has gone from the Makers Online Blog now, so I have chosen a shot of one of her pin cushions from her Etsy shop. I love the subtle lighting, and how the photo has enhanced an already beautiful handmade item. Gorgeous! If I didn’t loathe sewing so much, I would definitely be tempted to buy one :)
