We are delighted here at Grin Hq to announce the arrival of our rabbit mask- not only because it is beautiful, but because it allowed us to have some fun with the photos :)
She is the next step up from our cat mask, constructing pieces that don't follow the human face shape but rather build off that to create something completely different. Crafted in silver plated, non- tarnish wire, the panels are filled in with tiny glass seed beads.
Shaped the way she is, the ears catch the light from behind like a real rabbit and so we took her outside for a bit of sun :) We are lucky to live in a house with painted walls so we hung the mask against the textured surface to bounce the light around a bit more, illuminating the beadwork.
Because we had such a glorious day here, we also took some against the sky, which made a great composition- such a strong shape and great contrast.
When you're working with what you have around you it can be difficult to get just the shots you want so we've learnt to experiment, taking lots of pictures from all angles then choosing those with the most impact to compliment our more standard product shots.
After all, whoever buys her is unlikely to leave her on the shelf, so it's nice to give the photos some life, a bit of personality.
On to the next one :)
