Wow. They look so professional. I'm impressed.

I really like the one with the safety pin in it. What causes the bubbles, anyway?

Oh. Those pictures... It's really hard to even make out your pendants.

A suggestion. During the day, take your pictures next to an open window with the sunlight streaming in. You may get some shadow, but it'll be a lot better than other ways. Then lay down a white t-shirt on your surface (I like to use a chair, that way I can drape it over the back and have a solid background as well as sitting surface). Then put your projects on the shirt, and take the pictures there in front of the window.

This is the best way I have found to take pictures without your own light box. It's also easier with digital cameras, because they can more easily tell what you're trying to focus on with the solid background.

Also, if you're trying to take pictures of something small, don't worry so much about getting up close with the camera. Worry more about it being in focus. You can always crop the excess out later on with a photo program (such as Picassa).

I hope that these suggestions are helpful.

Oh! I LOVE the second one. Reminds me of fire. The colors compliment each other so well.

Very cute!

You might try finding better lighting for your photos, though. I've found the best thing to do (aside from spending money or time making/buying a lightbox), is simply to take pictures beside an open window where the sun is shining in. I put down one of my solid-colored jackets as a base, and snap my pictures when the son is out.

It's a little frustrating, having to wait till daylight hours and all, but the pictures turn out a LOT better, even with my fancy $600 camera.

Very cute, despite a little of the string showing. Definitely a nice pendant choice.
