New Background

I've been using music as the background for my jewelry listings for a while now, like in this listing of a rainbow bracelet. However, I wanted to make a change and try something new. I just wasn't sure what I should use.

Yesterday, as I was getting ready to take pictures of the jewelry I made over the weekend, I went looking around for a new background to use. I remembered a piece of fabric in all the fabric my mom gave me recently that I really liked and was wondering what I could make out of it. It had light, bright colors, and I thought it'd be a pretty background without being too over-powering. After all, I wanted the jewelry to stand out, not the background.

So, I gave it a try and I'm mostly happy with the results. I think my pictures will look a lot better when I finally make myself a light box (which I'm hoping to do sometime this week), but between natural sunlight and a little bit of help from the computer, I think the pictures turned out ok. I think they could stand to be a little brighter, and it'd be better if the whole picture were in focus, of course. Anyway, here is one of the items I listed using the fabric as a background in the pictures. Let me know what you think:

What are you favorite backgrounds when taking pictures?

Also, a fellow Etsian, Robyn, interviewed me for her blog recently. She posted the interview this morning. Here is the interview if you'd like to read it!

  1. I like to use a white or beige background with my chainmaille. But then, I always throw in a small knick-knack as a sort of prop, which brings in some extra color and interest.

    Good luck with your light box!
