I was like a kid in a candy store! I opened up the bag and all I could see was an assortment of glittering gems and marbled looking stones. I didn't know where to begin! There were just so many choices! And so many pretty things to photograph!!
A couple blog posts ago I talked about one of my awesome 2014 high school seniors, Stephanie, who also happens to be a super talented jewelry artist too! Before her senior photo session, while she was getting her hair and makeup professionally done by my other talented friend Kirstie Wight, I thought it would be fun to photograph some of Stephanie's hand-made creations. I asked if that would be ok and she said, "Sure! It's all over there in that bag!" I didn't really know what to expect but, when I opened what was inside I was floored with how unique and beautiful her jewelry was! Her work truly speaks for itself. Each piece is so professionally crafted you would have no idea that the woman behind it all is only 17 years old! Just looking at her work, you can tell how much thought and care she puts into selecting the stones and jewels she uses for each piece. Each set is truly a work of art.
Below is just a taste of the jewelry she creates. But don't just stop there! Check out even more of her jewelry here, in her online shop!
