Vintage Princess Jewellery is featured by Emily Cromarty Photography!

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all well and having a lovely week.

I've got some more lovely photos to show you! This time it's from Emily Cromarty Photography. I got a message from Emily a little while ago asking if she can feature some of my jewellery in her shoots and I most certainly said yes! Emily is a local photographer, and I'd seen her photos on Facebook and they are wonderful! It's really lovely having my jewellery in some of her shoots. Here are a few of the fab photos!

The Glitzy bracelets

And another beauty...


The Sophie necklace

And my favourite photo so far! Featuring the Sophie necklace, statement angel wings earrings, and 'One Day I'll Fly Away' necklace (coming to the website very soon!).

I'm also making jewellery for a shoot Emily is doing very soon too... It's all very exciting! Can't wait to get making them tomorrow. So hopefully you'll see some more amazing photos very soon!

For more information and to see more gorgeous photos by Emily you can visit her website, like her Facebook page or follow her on Twitter...

Thanks for reading!

Vintage Princess Jewellery loves Pinterest!

Hello lovelies!

Oh yes, I have something else to keep me occupied at the moment- Pinterest!



I signed up for Pinterest a while ago, but only just got round to using it properly a few weeks ago and I love it! It's a site where you 'pin' all the photos/images etc that you like to your own photo boards (by pin it means either upload or put the web link in and the picture will appear!). It's a place where I share all my images of my jewellery, amazing photos from Katelizabeth Photography, and all the other images of things that I like/come across etc. You can like/comment on other people's images that they've shared and if you love them lots you can repin them to your own photo boards.

At the moment I've got all my jewellery on there, Katelizabeth Photography shoot photos, favourite quotes and a things that I love board. Things such as...


tea! And...


Cupcakes! And...


Unicorns!

Anyone who knows me and knows of my Vintage Princess Jewellery business knows of my love of these things, but I thought it would be a good way of showing this and for letting others know what Vintage Princess Jewellery and me are about!

If you want to follow me on Pinterest please do! My user name is Vintage Princess Jewellery and my site link is http://pinterest.com/vpjewellery/

Come share pretty pictures with me!

Thanks for reading!

Happy Valentines day

Hello lovelies,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day!

Whether you're in a relationship, or single like me it's a day where we can all celebrate. It should be a day for telling people we care and how much we love them. On Twitter today My Personal Best (@mypersonal_best) https://twitter.com/#!/MyPersonal_Best made it clear to me that it should be a day for friendship as well as love. If you're not already, please do follow them, it's a site where they 'support people to reach their full potential'. They always tweet fab quotes etc that make you feel much better about yourself. Here's one I got from them...



So this is just a little post to share my love for you all, my family, friends, followers, likers, customers etc. I hope that this Valentines Day is a good one for you- whether you're in a relationship or single. I got a Valentines card from one of my wonderful friends, and it meant more to me than any Valentines card I've ever received! So thank you so much Hayley :)

Spread lots of love! And remember, that Vintage Princess Jewellery loves you lots!

Much love,

Vintage Princess Jewellery & Katelizabeth Photography

Morning lovelies,

Hope you're well!



I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my wonderful photographer- Kate from Katelizabeth Photography! Here's a photo of the lady herself... I adore this photo of her :)



As you may already know, I've been working with Kate for a long time now, nearly ever since I started my business. Kate's the one who is responsible for producing all the amazing photos of my jewellery! Working together we've had some fabulous photoshoots! I'll take you through most of them in this blog. Read on to see some simply stunning photography!

First I want to show/remind you of the amazing Glamour Photoshoot that Kate did for me a while ago now. It's a timeless shoot, still having the same 'WOW' impact on me as it did the first time I saw it. Kate did this photoshoot for me using some pieces I made inspired by the jewellery Audrey Hepburn wore, and my own pieces which feature both Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.


Kate's also used some green screen to produce some images for me. Her first ever attempt at using green screen and the results are simply amazing! Exactly what I wanted for my Summer 2011 advertisments!



Although this next shoot wasn't done for my jewellery, it does feature some of my jewellery and I really want to show you it! The Era shoot Kate did produced some amazing photos, this one is definitely my favourite...




Oooh, the next shoot I'm going to tell you about is definitely one of my favourites ever! It's featuring the beautiful Constance Peach! For this shoot I made a whole new collection of gorgeous jewellery, some of which is still available on my website- although not much is left I have to admit! I'll probably do another blog post just about this shoot as I adore it so much! But here's one of my favourite shots...



The Autumn/Winter photoshoot for 2011 saw Vintage Princess Jewellery's new collection comprising of fabulous knitwear as well as jewellery. So we went for more of a 'lifestyle' photoshoot, and my little puppy Archie made his photoshoot debut! Kate did such a fab job of working with him- lots of shouts of 'Archie', 'biscuits' and 'chicken' usually did the trick of getting him to look at the camera! haha.


Emi is the gorgeous model in the above photo and all the others from now on actually! I just love her look, so requested if she could be in all the photoshoots we had planned before Kate went back to uni.
The next photoshoot is what Kate came up with when I gave her my new pieces using Swarovski crystal to photograph- isn't this photo amazing!!!



Such a stunning photo! I was so, so, so pleased with this one! It looks like something you'd seen in a glossy magazine! Kate did me proud with this one! :)

For the Princess Pop collection we went for something a little bit different, and once again Kate delivered exactly what I wanted! Something super colourful, pop, with a kawaii style...


Ooooh, the White Princess shoot is the most recent one Kate's done for me and it's just gorgeous! Very 'Vintage Princess', simply stunning.


I just love all the photoshoots Kate has done for me, she's always worked so well with me to come up with amazing results. Such an amazing photographer. If you want to know more about Kate's work you can have a look at her Facebook page and you should definitely follow her blog! Both are really fab and I know you'll love following her and seeing all her wonderful work!

I hope you've enjoyed reading this blog and looking at all the stunning photos!

Much love,
