New Avatar Help

As stated in an earlier post, I'm thinking about changing my avatar. Here is what I have come up with. I put together a collage of thoughts and it includes my present avatar. Should it be something that is in my shop or would it be all right to use something that has sold already? Can I enlist your help in choosing a possible new one?

I would pick something with the faceted drops again, as I now associate that type of stone with your work. I think it's also fine to keep the same avatar, even of a sold piece. It becomes an identifier for you and your business.
I'm even trying to unify my avatar across Etsy, flickr, and associated stuff.

Maybe it's because Fall is approaching, but I am gravitating to any of the ones with the dark green stones in them (earrings or necklace). Lovely!

Sigh.

I have such an issue with change.

I still love the old one.

Steph is so funny!

But I agree with Knitsteel, I am now associating your work with the faceted drops, my favorites would be the top left blue against red and the bottom left green.

But then again, I'm really liking the uniqueness of the carved wood...

Green drops against red would be good for Christmas...

Am I helping?

Thank you all for your input. I'm still mulling this all over (and over and over again). Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill!

I like the green earrings, lower left, too. They would make a nice avatar and still keep the identity that you've established for yourself.

Thanks so much for your comments on the blog and feedback on Etsy. I'm so glad you like the pendant and I'm always happy to hear that my pieces are in a good home. I know you feel the same way about your own work.

Hummm...I think it be ok to stay with the same avatar you have, but I understand about change. Freshen things up a bit.

I like the gold necklace with the green faceted drop...the one in the top right hand corner....that's my favorite. I can see that as your new avatar.

Hugs!

They are all beautiful! :) I kinda agree with candace, I've come to recognize you by the one you have! :) ...but I love the green necklace on top!

Hi! I finally joined Blogspot! I added a link to you on my page! I hope that's ok? Hope things are well?

This isn't helpful to you, but they are all gorgeous! You are a great Jewelry Artisan along with Photographer! What kind of camera do you use? That's wonderful!

Best of luck in choosing!

Thank you for the info on the camera! Also, thank you for looking at my husband's Pencil Perfect Art blog!

You mentioned Etsy, I have visited that site many times; but don't know much about it. Can you please tell me if people sell well on there versus Ebay? Or is it even better for artists on there? I ask for my husband, as well as, this Artist we know in Romania who is an awesome surrealist painter! That might be good for her! Sorry for the long post! Thank you for the comments and compliments!
