Shades of Red

Hi Guys, I must say it is about time for me to do another Etsy Showcase, for the first one for this year I believe red is a good theme choice! Besides as you know Valentines Day is coming soon! Red has been a constant in my life and I think I was born to be dressed in red! There is a picture of me wearing a red dress at a very young age. From the start I think my mum put me in red almost from the day I was born, at least at 18 months old, my big sister got into the act and bought me this cute dress. The shades of red I have picked that I am most attracted to are deep dark reds blood, garnet, and burgundy through to the bright reds like cherry reds then to pinkish reds.

When I am doing these themes I like to find objects I would like to have or that are appealing pieces. I like them to interest my readers as well. You must look at these wonderful stores; they have lots more delightful items in their collections.
The stores in this Etsy Showcase are:

“A little fact on red- a warm colour is the colour of energy, excitement and vitality. It is also a good grounding colour. Red is a powerful healing agent for healing diseases of the blood and circulation. It will also help with depression but it can raise blood pressure or anxiety. Red, used in a large space, can be welcoming, energising and invigorating, but it can radiate aggression. Red, in a small space, can be cosy, intimate, or claustrophobic.” Internet source

I know I have been very dreadfully slack with abandoning my blog, it was the holiday season. I hope you all had a great Christmas and you were not naughty to Santa and got many goodies. And I hope the start to New Year has been good as well. Nevertheless, it was not all play I was busy with photographing, editing and uploading. Plus, I was organising some fantastic models to illustrate my jewellery. We had a fun time though my models were getting a bit tired of putting the pieces on and taking them off again. I feel that live models give a better idea of how my jewellery looks in real life. I know seeing examples on real people helps me to make my choice when I am buying jewellery on the internet. Also it gives you a better idea of the sizes and colours and what will go with your clothes.
