Ice and Frost

About this design:

this one was really hard to photograph, hope it's visible! The rock crystal nuggets looked like lovely pieces of ice, and I spaced them with silver "stardust" beads for a frosty accent

    thanks! My hubby was photographing some geek stuff for selling on Ebay, and I asked him to do a few pieces for Lima when he finished (thus the old white flannel sheet with the grass stains as background). I’ll try to take another picture with a dark background and add it.

    It is a very versatile necklace since it goes with many colors- I’ve worn it a lot this winter!

    One of my favorite backgrounds is a piece of denim (or my denim skirt – whichever os handier when I get ready to shoot. The denim isn’t stark, so it doesn’t do wierd things to the focus and color saturation.
