Bead Work


231/365
About a month ago, I mentioned that I was working on a project, but I wasn't free to share many details back then.

Well, the project turned out to be my very first paid photography gig! I was unsure about my qualifications for the job, but I had promised myself at the beginning of this Project 365 journey that I would remain open to whatever opportunities to grow and learn I encountered along the way. Plus, my subject -- the beads, above -- and the company behind them are all about supporting women and inspiring them to reach new goals. How could I not try?

For a couple of weeks, these seven little beads were my obsession. I took hundreds of photos. I learned a lot, mostly through trial and error. (Emphasis on "error"...) And now, I am happy to say, all of the photo images at confidencebeads.com are by me!

Outstanding! Glad to hear it!

It's as Rupe always states: "You learn from your mistakes, not your successes". And, in this case, you've learned from your errors.

Rupe will be visiting said site shortly .....
