    Thank you for your compliment!

    I know this will be one of my favorites :-)

    I think taking photographs is soooo hard. Eighter the light is too bright, it’s to dark og the camera just wont focus.

    Too me it seems that my Photos are unsharp.

    What do you think? Am I right? Or am I just beeing to critical?

    Oh wow! Fantastic design!! It’s gorgeous!

    Yes, the pics are a bit blurry. But I’ve noticed that happens sometimes when you upload here. Were they clear before you posted? The lighting on the first one is just fine but the others are too dark. I read somewhere that if you’re going to err, err on the side of too much light.

    I knew this was one of your pieces the minute I saw it. You do such fabulous monochromatic designs. Post a photo of you wearing this gorgeous creation. Bet is will be dynamite! :D

    Absolutely love the design! All of your pieces are so elegant and distinctively one-of-a-kind. Great job on this one too! Maybe using a lighter background in your photos may help bring out the sharpness of the piece better? Keep up the great work! :)

    Very original and creative. Silver is hard to photograph. I think it looks better against the white background.

    I love this design. Where did you get the watch face? I have the same problem on photos I take they always come out a bit blurry and show no detail, so I’m no help there. A sales person where I live suggested using a macro lens on my photos. You may could look into one. The only downside is they cost $150 and up.

    I think it is difficult to photograph on silver too. I am workning om getting a black mannequinn too.

    I also like the mannequins with hemp/rough fabrick – but I can not find it anywhere in Europe and it is too expensive to import fra America.

    I bought the watch on ebay. Search “Watch bead” in the category jewelry and watches. I bought 10 watches for about 12 usd.

    There is a ton of diffenrent watches to buy :-)

    PS. I’m too old to acting as a model for my jewelry. If I was 10 years younger, I would have don it.

    Yes, definitely one of your cool designs again! I think the photos are very good, but perhaps not perfect all of them: some are blurry. A couple of others seem to have a problem with too sparkly crystal! And several seem to be slightly out of focus in just part of the necklace — this is a problem I often have too. I have two macro programs in my “a bit more advanced pocket camera” (a 5-6 years old Olympus), and the closer macro always have a very short focus. Except getting a more expensive system camera (if you don’t already have one — and I manage fairly well without), my advice is to take like a million pics of the same object, testing different light and backgrounds, and hope some turn out OK. Lots of indirect light is usually best (luckily becoming in season again…). Anyway, your pics are really well composed, and great already! And BTW, on my screen none look to dark. The reason the light background looks better is probably because the camera handles focusing better with that. Great work!
