Please help me by giving me constructive criticism of these 4 necklaces. Please tell me what you like and don't like about them, which ones you might buy if you saw it in a store, and what you think a fair price might be for each of them. I am thinking of maybe selling my designs in the future once I get a silver sauterer and learn how to use it. Thank you for your comments and time! Grin
Here is the link to the photos of my necklaces:

It's difficult for me to give you an accurate assessment based on the photos since I can't see the level of detail I would want.
I would suggest you start the price based on the materials and time you have in it and go from there.

Some of them certainly look interesting! But Blacksmith is right, we can't see much detail in webcam photos. You'll find Etsy's photography guide to be quite useful, as it's geared towards people selling online.

You don't need a $500 camera, just a point-and-shoot or even a cellphone. The biggest key to good close-up photos (called macro photos) is good light and a steady camera. I've taken amazingly detailed macros of flowers using my boyfriend's iPhone 3G simply by taking the pictures on a bright day and steadying my hand on my knee.

Still not quite getting the detail I need there to make a judgement.

As a random vaguely related note on photography here is how to make a cheap macro lens for your cellphone.

Time to make a trip to your local thrift store and find you a DVD drive eh? I've done this one and it works as advertised, which is a pleasant surprise.

Very interesting link!  Thanks.

Just wanted to mention another option for close-up shots.  Works very well when wouldn't think it should.
That is just to lay jewelry (or even more-dimensional items) on the bed of a scanner, then scan.

For some things can be good to place a box lid over the item, or other things to control various looks and shadows, but the focus is perfect on whatever touches the screen and the depth of field farther back looks pretty natural too.  
(more info at my site, and more on photographing small items/etc, if you're interested:
