Photographing jewelry (finalizing) 2

A few days ago I posted about the ‘branding’ of Yvonne’s (my wife) jewelry or jewellery (for the Americanos). I’m not a graphical designer but one of our neighbors is. I was stuck with the header; in fact it was a point of sophisticated discussion (no plates broken, etc.) between me and my client. So our neighbor came in and she was first of all amazed of the collection. For people from outside South Africa like us, it’s sometimes difficult to understand that South Africans in general are not great believers in the products developed and made in their own country… With her advise we changed a few minor things. First of all a better readable (Geneva instead of Chalkduster) lettertype for the footer. But the major issue, the header, needed a bit more upgrading. We enlarged the two text lines (full width) and added some soil in the background. Next we brightened up the name Dhunga. Yes; we are all Happy now. The entire concept of the layout etc. was done in Photoshop CS6

Dhunga Earthworks Jewelry ‘Made in Stanford’

This is just a first trial; more Trial & Error to follow.

Yvonne developed a way of binding earth particles in a natural environmental way. Combined with Sterling Silver and Swarovsky gems Yvonne creates jewelry under the ‘brand’ Dhunga Earthworks. And it’s selling (wholesale and retail via The Little Gem in Hermanus). Dhunga is Nepalese for Rock.

In due time she wants to market the jewelry via selected outlets on a global scale. But first she is busy with the creation of a new line of bracelets and necklaces. Prices of the different items vary from USA 50.00 to USD 300.00.

Packaging is ‘green’ and made of cotton and corrugated cardboard.
