Rockin Some Rhyolite Necklace


About this design:

I got this faceted rhyolite from LB and then I found the jasper pendant and thought they looked gorgeous together. I like to attach pendants in different ways so I used chocolate brown leather cord and jump rings. I am a fan of clean uncluttered design in my jewelry. I don't like too much foof. I love rhyolite. It is one of my favorite stones to work with.

Components:

Faceted 14mm rhyolite, jasper pendant, Thai silver beads, chocolate brown leather cord and a silver Bali toggle.

    Hi Mary. Thanks for your comments. As far as the photography goes, first thing I did was buy a good camera. Mine is the Fugifilm Fine Pix S with 14 megapixels. I take my photos in the morning or early afternoon in my front bedroom which is north facing. I have a big window with lots of natural light. I have a rolling cabinet right there so I put a piece of off white heavy paper on the cabinet and just behind it to cover up the blue paint of the room. I use a tripod for most shots. The only training I had was to read the manual that came with the camera and I purchased one digital download on how to photograph jewelry. Believe me, it took a lot of experimenting before I was able to achieve the photos I have now. I really think the two most important things are a good camera and natural light. Hope that helps.
