For each finished image in the catalog, we sometimes have to take hundreds of shots before we get the right one. For this particular series, a total of 398 shots were taken! It’s nice to go back now and look through the ones that didn’t make the cut. There are so many good ones… the editing process is brutal!
May I present to you…the cover of the Seaman Schepps Spring/Summer 2011 catalogue, featuring our iconic Mousetrap Bracelet in 22k gold, diamond and emerald. The photo tucked under the watercolor rendering is the illustrious Blanche Knopf (Mrs. Alfred P. Knopf) wearing 3 Mousetraps on one fabulous wrist while on a yacht. Legend has it that when she found out that another woman had also acquired a Schepps Mousetrap bracelet, she increased her collection to three. A woman after my own heart!
