The Beautiful Woods

Thinking of the mood I wanted for my images, a favourite Burne-Jones quote came immediately to mind:

''I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be - in a light better than any light that ever shone - in a land no one can define, or remember, only desire''

I am a bit of a romantic and I adore the work of the  Pre-Raphaelites. This Image of John William Waterhouse's 'Ophelia' offered something of a starting point.


  

The importance of good photography is so so crucial . I chose to work with the very talented Sam at Rose and Rainbow Photography. I had seen her style and felt that her style was so perfect I didn't want to butt in with my arty quotes and images and that I would allow her creative feedom to interpret my work. If you do look at her other stuff, you will see, she has just 'got it'.

We used two wonderful models, Hannah and Alarna, whose patience was unbelievable. The look was created by Make-up and Hair by Gemma. WOW! it was amazing to see just how the right make-up creates the perfect look! 

Location was a no-brainer. I adore visiting the local woods. Warley Woods is dear to my heart for many reasons. To visit is to escape for a moment and be surrounded by the beauty of nature among tree's much older than I and that will stand long after I am gone. Kane & I love to bring the children here too. In fact they were around during the shoot and we convinced them the models were fairies. Look at them! It wasn't hard.

I learnt so much about how natural light can be the most amazing studio you could ask for. We started at 10am and worked until almost 6pm. Having done nothing apart from move around the woods to the different location, I was exhausted! Sam still had so much energy and never compromised when getting the right shot. Hannah and Alarna still looked serenely beautiful! I love the images so much I want to share them with you.

 

 

Neck, Wrist and Ring Sizing

Neckwear

As a default all our pendants are hung on 18 inch chains. We have found this is the most popular length. We can supply our pendants on 16'' 18'' 20'' 22'' 24''. 

To decide what is the best length for you, measure an existing chain that is a comfortable length and make a note to help when choosing.

Alternatively, use a piece of string or ribbon to determine the perfect length for you.

Wristwear

Bracelets are very straightforward. The universally accepted length is 7 to 71/2 inches. Ours all have a short extender chain to allow for a little variation.

Bangles can be a bit trickier. We have a great tool you can download to help with this. You can place your own bangle over the template or cut it out and carefully put your hand through the hole. We find the medium is by far our most popular size.
