We generally prefer no background (or deleting it) so that focus is solely on the piece.  We've made a free tutorial for doing that on our website:

I have successfully used everything from beach sand in a shallow baking tray to craft foam in various colors. Beach sand is great because the piece will more or less stay where you put it. Use a paintbrush to get stray sand off the piece, and just blow gently to "sculpt" the sand and get rid of dents and finger marks. I have also raked the sand for a corduroy texture.

Gray craft foam is a little boring, but also lets the subject "pop". Velvet can suck too much light out of the product. Strong background colors will reflect onto the product, and that may be undesirable. I have also used subtly patterned quilt fabric in blue/gray colors...

I've used multiple backgrounds in the past, but now mainly stick with holding the piece in my hand, or setting it on my windowsill. Nothing fancy, but natural light certainly does the work justice! It gives me the truest colors as well.  Wink
