We decided to try it for ourselves and invited some of our advertisers to come along for a photo shoot featuring jewelry for every style and occasion. All they were told was to dress in black, deck out in jewelry and be willing to smile for the camera.
We wanted to see how different jewelry could change the mood of a basic black foundation.
What started out as a staged shoot, turned into an afternoon of fun, laughter and new friendships.
