Over The Moon


Sara Rey Jewelry Photography Blog 64


Maybe someday I’ll stop throwing puns into my blog post titles, but today isn’t that day.

Last week I got to shoot a fun project for Lindsay Jane Designs. Lindsay Jane is an award winning designer and all around fantastic person. I first met Lindsay through WJA and took an immediate liking to her. Her penchant for amazing gemstones and high end craftsmanship also demands respect and sets her apart.

She asked me to photograph one of her dreamy designs, featuring a moonstone center and colorful halo, with some filigree work in the gallery. We decided to shoot a few angles, allowing the various design aspects to be seen. Moonstones can be tricky to photograph, but some lighting magic and a prayer to the gods of phenomenal gemstones allowed me to catch the periwinkle-blue adularescence of this lovely oval piece.
