New camera, same lovely beads

It seems since I started making beads I've been trying to find a way to photograph them. Small shiny objects of glass are so satisfying to create. Documenting them, not so much. Armed with a new camera I decided it was time to have another go at it. This time I reached out to a fellow beadmaker, Jinx Garza, for some insight. Her bead photos have always been super dreamy and absolute perfection. Putting her tips to use I was able to capture the photos below. It seems I'm on the right path at last. Yeah!!
Pretty purple and cranberry set
Blue, green and soft purple beads with blue scrolling lines
One of my favorites, Sea-foam ribbons  focal bead
