Jewelry is one of the hardest things I’ve ever photographed.  It is so difficult to get the light just right so that the colors are represented properly and there aren’t too many shadows…

With that said, I have to apologize for the photos of this necklace:

Granted I didn’t try too hard with the photo above.  Laziness took over and I’m using it to show how the necklace hangs, rather than pulling out the big flash to try to take a better shot.

The photo below is a close up of the gems.  Three rhodolite garnet rondelles wire-wrapped on a small jump ring.

All right, it’s still not a great picture, but you get the idea.

When I start adding new pieces to my website (which should happen soon, boys and girls), I will have to bite the bullet and really take some nice shots of all my work.  For now you’ll have to be satisfied with these.

    I like this a lot. I see you’re in your minimalist phase. Very simple and pretty. Here’s a good site if you’re looking for an idea/project for great photos.
