I checked out your website and it's awesome.... I love some of the stuff you have made... I've been wanting to go to college for fashion design and some of that stuff kind of inspired me i guess to not only do clothing...

Thanks! That's a great compliment. Smiley *blush*

I'd love to go to a fashion college sometime myself, however, I picked computers so I have to make my money back first. Wink Not to mention, have a baby sometime, pay for this house, etc...all that adult stuff. :/ lol

A second degree may be something I just think about...

Do you usually measure your memory wire around your own neck? I never know how long to make the necklaces.

Not everyone's neck is the same and since stones don't always lay the same for everyone, depending on their circumference, I tend to overlap the memory wire by half a loop. Not only do you ensure a "one-size-fits-all" measurement, you also give people the feeling of security when wearing the necklace because the ends overlap behind their neck.

Just wondering how you set teh lighting up for when you take your pics ? It always looks so perfectly natural!

Thanks! I use a homemade light box (read: rubbermaid tin). I have two lights on top and one light coming in from the side to cast a longer shadow. And most importantly, I use daylight bulbs. Makes so much of a difference.

i dont suppose there is anyway you could take a pic o your light box ? I was reading about making one but im not sure ifim completely understanding the idea behind it...

OK so i made myself a lightbox, and im havnig super difficulty getting the background to be completely white. I accidently bought a clear rubbermaid bin thinking thats what i saw inthe pic, so i will have to find a white one like yours... could that be my problem ?  hmmmm

Try some interface around the container. I failed to mention that. Sorry. Sad Also, you will still need to do some manipulation in an image editing program...especially if you take your pictures on a white background.
