These are so neat! I read the listing, and I love the story behind them. They are just adorable. Because this photo is for a listing, that's what my critique will revolve around. There are only a few things I would change: It took me a little while to see that they weren't letters, but symbols. I notice that the acorns in the foreground of the photo do not have their symbols visible, and I think that is hurting the photo. Because the defining feature of these little acorns are the symbols, you'll probably want those to be up front and clear. The white background is perfect, and the bag is simple and definitely works for this photo. My only concern is that you aren't really showcasing what your buyers can do with these acorns. Because they're a speciality item, you may want to make it clear if they are decorative, or whatever else the buyer is supposed to do with them. For instance, if they are decorative, photographing them in a bowl with other simple decorations, or something like that. Nothing too fancy, but to give some more definition as to what these are going to be used for. Right now I'm looking at them and recognizing that they're adorable, but as for buying them, I'm not sure what I'm expected to do with them. Give your buyers some options. All in all, the photo is very well-done, clean, and crisp. Great work!
This is suuuch a fantastic idea! and so beautifully executed. I really love the colour contrast of the acorn caps and the clay. The unbleached cloth bag is the perfect rustic finishing touch for the set at well. the runes have been painted on with such care - a great balance between the wild and the potently controlled. Perfect!
ahhh these are awesome! But I wonder, aren't they hard to, uh, throw, seen as they are round? I'm not really familiar with reading runes, but aren't they supposed to either show (i.e. with the rune facing up), or not show at all? Either way, they are lovely serving a decorative purpose.
Thank so much for the comment! I'm glad you like them ^_^ as for using them in reading it depends how you read runes, I mostly just pull them out of the bag one at a time and do a layout (like with tarot)so that works fine, but some people through them all out I think XD I did make them falter then the ones I make for jewelry so they don't roll around everywhere so that might be enough for a thrown reading but I haven't tried. I think the main issue is that some people read the symbols differently if they're upside down but with he acorns you know which way's up so you can't really do that. I like doing readings with them, but your right they're not really practical for daily use ^_^
