Dearest Watchers and Members!
A lot of people want to submit to the Featured gallery, and not all work, including my own, find their way into the folder. And a lot of people complain and argue with me that I'm not being objective and I allow only what I like.
All works of craft what may go into the FEATURED folder must have 50 Favorites and above and have a good quality photo of the item itself (no models which almost cover the item, no extra blings made in Photoshop etc).
The only photo-shopping which will be allowed on the photos is a watermark or a stamp of the maker in the corner. Too many photos I've seen have clear changes like covering up the flaws, changing color of the items etc.
Hope you understand that the FEATURED folder is only for very special items.
In some rare cases even +50 Favs may not be allowed if I spot some clear-case photo manipulation to make an item look better. I also don't think that jewelry made of ready-made findings like single-bead earrings made with ready-made ear hooks should be in the feature folder unless the bead was made by the author from scratch (i.e. from fused glass or polymer clay - but that should be in the description)
Feel free to upload all sorts of jewelry in the right folders!
