Photo shoot with Ellie May

Back in SparkleLux's infancy (approximately a year and a half after I 'opened shop'), I found a great amateur model named Ellie May. Here's some shots of her from 2011:

She was only 16 at the time. 

During a recent trip to Arizona, I decided to look her up and do yet another shoot with her. The first one was so pleasant, as she's as sweet as can be and a total natural in front of the camera. Another plus: she's great at handling her own styling. 

On location! Ellie May is wearing SparkleLux round earrings in Oddball (even though you really can't see them!) and our Hot Dog! copper brooch. 

Black and white shot of Ellie May…

Wearing Crimson Twinkle lucite and Swarovski rhinestone earrings!

These are available in limited numbers at SPARKLELUX.NET

These earrings are coming very soon! They measure a whopping 3.5" in length and are nothing but pure holographic silver elements and Swarovski rhinestones.

Here we are after the shoot!

Big thanks to my assistant for the day, Ana!
