We've arrived at Craftgawker

Recently I submitted images of some of our items from our Etsy site.

I was lucky in that 2 of our 6 images were accepted.

Introducing Ice Gold - A frosty farfalle necklace with little golden farfalles in the mix, this beaded pendant necklace incorporates a natural chunk of Pyrite, or "fools gold" above a frosty completely natural rock quartz point. This crystal point is very unique.

New to farfalle? Farfalle is italian for bow tie (pasta), and butterfy is another term associated with farfalle. Either way, these beautiful little beads are stunning. To see more farfalle: click here X

And now to our next piece:

Peachy Keen - pink coral and pearl knotted necklace.
Hand tied Peachy Pink coral, with gold and oblong creamy white Freshwater pearls, this long necklace can be worn a variety of ways; not only in the traditional long open necklace style, but also tied in front, doubled, and even wound on the wrist

But we're not done yet. More will be submitted on a regular basis. The interesting thing is, these submittals have actually caused me to look at my own image composition from a new angle.
these were declined :o(

Craftgawker is cool in that they will actually give the submitted images short critiques as to why they have been declined. I found Craftgawker through Etsy Forums where some folks were confused as to why their images had not been accepted. When I submitted my first group of two, both were declined. One seemed valid to me, the other, so so. However, when returning to their site I studied the images that had been accepted, and submitted images of mine that were in a similar layout, and from each of my submissions one was accepted. So that made me happy. And it has taught me something too.
Always room to learn something new...
