I finally bit the bullet...

and bought a light tent. I've seen lots of tutorials of how to make your own, I even made one of my own, but nothing really worked as well as natural light but even that poses a never ending line of trouble.

I have given up trying to find the right time of day when the light is just right. I've tired of the fighting mosquitoes or fighting the heat and humidity, the glare or the shadows.

This way, I can actually photograph whenever I want to and when it is convenient for me.

I'm still working on a little "tweaking" the light values, but I believe it will work out and be much more convenient.

I am giving this necklace away to celebrate my 300th sale. You can enter it here.


  1. You'll wonder how you ever lived without one:o)

  2. I tried making a light box.. it was a disaster. I should buy one! Your pictures look amazing! I love love love your shop!

  3. Hi! Thank you for commenting on my blog! I do appreciate the tips. I will give it a try. Do you put the solder on the inside and pull out or do you put the solder on the outside of the ring pull in? Am I making any sense?

    By the way, I have always loved your shop..your work is beautiful. I truly love watching your new work..that Amethyst sage pendant is gorgeous!

    Thank you for your time..have a great day!

  4. Its def paid off, the photos look beautiful!
