I bought these lovely beads, and, once I had them in my hands, they made me think of Van Gogh's "Starry Night." They are so clear I had trouble getting my camera to focus on them. One question: does anyone know what a merkaban is?
This past Christmas, my brother and my husband gave me a great lightbox set. The box itself is collaspable and folds up into a carrying case, which has pockets for a great set of lights and a tripod that came with it. I recently started taking my product pictures using the lightbox, and I think they've turned out great.
While my coffee cup seems to work well for hanging earrings, I've not found a good solution for my rosaries and chaplets. I've ordered a curved display from Fire Mountain Gems that I think will work well, and I'm looking forward to trying it out.
For some reason, Spring makes me want to make earrings. I've started buying beads in bright colors, and I'm planning to sit down and make several pairs this week. I found the most interesting beads that are almost star shaped, and I've got a few colors of CZ to make into drop earrings, too.
I hope everyone had a good Easter. Above is a picture of the cake I made for the family Easter dinner.
