Thank you! And yeah, it's such a simple concept but it just seemed to come out so well! I'm so pleased. (All the careful trimming, and tweezer placement work paid off! Wink )
3474  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Peacock Feather in Miniature Glass Bottle - Necklace on: May 14, 2009 10:58:32 AM
I'm so proud of how this came out. It's deceptively simple but wound up being a real labor of love to get it perfect. It's a genuine peacock feather inside a little glass bottle. The bottle is really neat with a big stopper. It's then put on a simple silver link chain.

It's actually en route right now to it's surprise recipient but I couldn't wait to share it. I was just so pleased with the final result. Cheesy

LOL - I'm looking at the thumbnails and I think, Is that Dr. Robotnik? Imagine my surprise when it was! Man, I spent an entire summer vacation playing Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine on the Sega Genesis many, many moons ago. Good job!

Also, I've seen my exact model camera at Costco. Since it's a slightly older version they carry it on a closeout. I think it was around $150ish bucks. (It was $250 when I got it.) It's still a great camera.

Edit to add: Online only, this week, staples.com has the camera on it's ad cover for $129 (link) Just found it in case anyone is interested.

Ok, my first birthday claim was mailed today. DesignVigilante - look for it soon.

Laela - yours is packaged and ready to go, but...I have to wait until I can get to the post office during office hours. Sadly, you can't mail international packages through the Automated Postal Center. Cry I should get a chance to get it out in the next few days though.

And, forcemajeure - in a fit of inspiration today, I even made your package. So when you get a chance, pm me your addy and I'll get it packed and ready to go when I get Laela's out.

Yay for May birthdays! Grin

Thanks for all the great info Smiley By light, do you mean natural light or indoor lighting?
Both. I try to take shots during the day but I also use an OTT light (which better represents the natural spectrum of light) to ensure it's bright enough without the flash. Flash ruins the shots and blows out the detail. If you don't have an OTT Light specifically, any clip lamp or bendable lamp with a broad-spectrum or "daylight" bulb will work fine. (Just check your camera's white balance levels to ensure it's compensating for the type of light you use.)

Check out any of these results for more ideas on how to set it up. Cheesy

You always have such great pictures of your items... Do you use a special camera or a special photo-editing program?
Thanks! But nope. I use a Cannon Powershot SD1100is - it's an ultra compact point-and-shoot that's a couple years old now. It takes good shots though. I use a LOT of light, no flash and the manual macro setting. Then I usually crop and brighten a smidge in a really old copy of Paint Shop Pro and that's about it. You can buy light boxes and special lamps and such but I'm poor so I make due. If you google things like "make your own light box" you can get tips on how to set up for jewelry or other close-up photos in greater detail, but honestly? I find it's a lot of trial-and-error. It helps though to have a camera with good macro abilities. It's always a priority for me because of the jewelry and because it's my favorite type of photography to take in general.

I'm so pleased you like it!  Cheesy

Here's a shot I took before I sent it off:
