You know when you look at your shop frontpage and think there's something missing? Well my Folksy shop has been looking, well, a bit colourless recently. My item photos are quite colourful but my banner was a bit dull and needed some work. I remembered a pair of "traffic light" earrings I photographed last week made with colourful czech glass beads I bought from Lima Beads . I've been after the gorgeous pistachio green colour for a while and did see some on Etsy but thought I'd check at Lima Beads and they had the exact colour plus some lovely mustard yellow and an orangy-red in the czech glass so I bought them straight away! I loved the three colours together so made a pair of earrings with some copper discs and used one of the photos to whip up a new banner. Much more colourful! I took a lot of photos last week because we had sunshine in the UK - yes summer made a brief appearance again and now I just have to edit them all!
