New Collections

One of the most difficult things when you run an Internet business might be how to present your products through pictures, especially, if you do that all by myself. It took me a lot of time and effort to get better quality of photos. Normally, I took more than 50 shots easily per my creation. After taking pictures of different combinations of backgrounds, lighting and positions, I look through all photos. Editing starts. And I choose 5 best pictures and upload them. (www.arionjewelry.com) After 3 to 5 products listed on Internet, I get exhausted. I don't even feel like to list any products for a while. Since I live in Seattle, the weather doesn't seem to be helpful. It still takes lots of trials and errors, but I think my photograph skill is getting better. Steadily. Hopefully this is not my daydream. :) Thank you for sharing my story!

2010 Exhibition at Kirkland Art Gallery

I am thrilled to exhibit my necklace at Kirkland Art Gallery throughout August. One of my jewelry has been juried and selected for Kirkland Art Center's 2010 Exhibition. I feel so privileged to know that my necklace is the only one jewelry chosen in this exhibition. "This year, we are privileged to have Gunnar Nordstrom as our juror. Since opening in 1991, Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery has served the Eastside and the Seattle metropolitan area by bringing artists and art-lovers together, contributing much to our vibrant arts community. As both curator and art dealer, Nordstrom's discerning eye for artistic excellence and his appreciation of a wide range of mediums and ideas makes him well suited to jury this year's exhibition. The exhibit features a selection 40 works by 34 KAC Members, including, paintings, prints, ceramics, sculpture, photography, and mixed media."
