Wire wrapped Coffee Bean Jasper


About this design:

Coffee Bean Jasper cabochon from LB. I wasn't satisfied with the quick shot that I took. The wire was out of focus. So, I redid this using the Macro setting on my digital camera and switched to a black velvet background. Thought I'd upload the result so all y'all could see the effect of taking time with photographic composition.

Components:

Coffee Bean Jasper, square (22 ga) and half-round (21 ga) brass wire.

    My thanks to all the commentors.

    MERChick–I almost had the photography figured out.

    The wire exposure was giving me fits but a reshoot making a few changes fixed that. As you’ll see from the second image that I uploaded.
