New From the Bench.... and second attempt at a logo

In an attempt to start creating things that are ready to ship in preparation for the upcoming holiday season I have begun a line of earrings. Here is the newest pair. They are 6mm faceted pink amethysts. The stones are so pretty with a little purple hue to them.

How do you like my new earring card?

On a second note, I spoke with the person who is designing my new logo about how I felt about the previous designs. While I said I liked the design I didn't feel it represented my work well. I was looking for something more sophisticated, sleek, etc. (see the first design here ) Well, I am guessing either I am not communicating well or she doesn't understand...because this was her second try. Disappointing a little. I think the colors are okay, but *sigh* the flower again...

I haven't responded because I just don't know what to say. I felt I was clear last time so, well, I just don't know.
Maybe I'll show her my earring card and tell her to go in that direction. I'm liking the way that looks. I'd love some input! Critique away!


  1. Love the earring card. I think it's a good idea to show it to the designer and see if she can come up with else. Good luck!

  2. Hmm I just left a comment on your other post about the logo where I mentioned perhaps trying just one flower and boom here it is. hehe. I actually think this looks MUCH better than the previous ones. The second one looks really great. However, I still like the font from the first one. You want something that's going to stand out and be recognizable as your brand/logo so that's probably why I'd go with the more styalized font, but in that case a simpler/cleaner flower would look better paired with it (in my opinion hehe). Anyways, it's really up to you and what you like. Definitely show the designer your cards if you love them - that will help a lot. Best of luck!

  3. I really like the scroll work you've done. I have been working at it but have had little success - I usually get too much heat (I use a Creme Brulee torch too) and end up melting some of the fine scroll wire. I really think I need to get a more versitile torch...but then I see what you've been able to do with the same torch and I realize you are able to do far more precise work than me. I would love some tips or advice from you!
