Ever since I opened my etsy shop almost 2 years ago, I've been struggling with this issue. I Love taking abstract photos of my designs, where the geometry, textures and colors are the main feature. Nevertheless from time to time I get requests to see the earring on an ear, or a necklace on a neck.... I also got more then once a comment from clients saying, this is so pretty when worn !!!! you just have to take photos on a model...
Its not that I have been fighting it , I have really tried, but always felt that the abstract transforms better my concept. Crazy designer one may say.
I decided to give it one last try before i turn to a pro (i.e. photographer + stylist + model+ makeup), i get a headache just to think how many people i would need for hire such a production....
So here are my latest experiments, which i feel aren't that bad .

I LOVE museum shops, this is the place where I do most of my shoppings when going abroad and want to buy souvenirs for myself and others. When my kids were younger i used to bring them quality coloring booklets and other arty stuff.
As a designer it was one of my aims, to have my designs offered in a museum shop, its not like having a show in a museum but the appeal is great .
So I'm glad to tell you all that my items are now available both in Tel Aviv museum of Modern Art shop and Tikotin museum shop in Haifa.
So now when you come visiting Israel and dont have the time to pop in to my studio you know where to find my designs......

Getting ready for a fair always brings new opportunities for taking photographs of multiple item. I agree that it doesn't necessarily benefit all designs and that sometimes it may turn it less valuable when it is not presented solo.
Personally I have a week point to such photos, maybe its the industrial designer in me that LOVES to see my designs in quantities.....
So here is a photo I made thanks to these preparations.....
