I've had these once gold plain looking earrings for awhile. I was going to take the beads off and throw them away. But then I got the idea to wrap them with wire and seedbeads. For some reason my jewelry looks terrible with white back grounds. I have been taking pictures on a banana tree leaf and the pictures have been vibrant and crystal clear.
In this picture you can see the details.
 
Here is the pair together.

This is what they use to look like.

I think so too. I used all recycled materials to make them even the wire. Thank you for replying.

VERY nicely done- the before was kinda "Ugh", but the after pic is spectacular! Good choice for your background, too- white seems to wash out everything, but natural or vintage backgrounds work a lot better.  Smiley
