Krk Bracelet

During our holidays in Krk I bought a bracelet and matching armlet from a local artist. The ‘Galerija Dagmar’ is located at the main plaza of Krk and is the showroom of a family of artists. The water colour paintings shown there carry a wonderful reflection of the mediterranean light, and the silver works have a strong unique and dedicated style.

Stowing away and hiding these gems for my wife’s birthday, I decided to use them as subjects for some photography. Confronting them with rock as in the leading image as well as seeing them on a plant as backdrop both seem to me valid interpretations of the jewellers work. The image on the stone received some desaturation as well as local contrast enhancement, whilst the picture with the plant underwent a careful orton effect treatment.


  1. blog note:

    Just stopped by using pre-3.0 Firefox and find that the blogroll is now showing up properly, in order of freshness and with post titles showing along with blog titles. Whatever tweaks you’re making to the software, they are working.

    Oh, and the jewelry looks really nice on the green leaves.

  2. Carl, I had to resort to a really ugly trick: I set up a blog with only the blogroll on my old google blogger account and wrote a wordpress plugin that calls that page, extracts only the blogroll and integrates it into the real blog. It loads much faster and is browser independent now.
