Which picture shall define me?

Recently, I started experimenting with a new style of photography for my etsy shop. Having built a light box, I now have the pleasure of shooting in the middle of the night and not having to depend on the the sun when, in its mercy, it decides to grace us for a few hours to bring humble slivers of light into our gloomy, Canadian winter days.

But let us to put such run-on sentences aside: I am thinking of changing my avatar. Should I? Do tell me which you prefer:

OLD:










NEW:










I've changed it to the new one in my shop, and you can also see some of the new versus old pictures of my jewelry. Pretty please have a look and tell me what you think! xo

PS: The second picture is actually me, whereas the first is Botticelli's vision of Venus, goddess of love, and arguably the most beautiful woman ever. Funny, that.

I absolutely love the old picture,it so reflects who you are in so many ways. Wouldn't we all like to be Venus?

I love the old picture...so flowing and really pops out. Will check out the new pics. It is so great to have a light box...wouldn't be without one!

I have to say, when I see the old one, I always know it's you - might not be a good idea to change that? The new picture is beautiful too but I think if you've got instant recognition you should stick with it!

Ok darlings! You've convinced me! :) The old one it is... I think you are right though: it has become a part of me so much, that I don't think I could part with it.

Thank you very much for your feedback! <3
