Coin Necklace

I made this necklace the other day. It is the first "real" piece of jewelry I've made in a long time.

It turned out quite different than the image I had in mind, but I think it looks pretty good. I'm not really happy with this photo though. I think the way the necklace is laid out looks kind of "forced".

Here it is on my mannequin Svetlana. I had a real heck of a time trying to photograph the necklace on her. I dragged her all over the house trying to get a good light source, but no matter what, the images came out grainy. I probably need to do some fiddling with the settings on my camera.

I don't know yet if I am going to sell this piece. I think I'm going to wear it around for awhile before I decide.

What do you think? Do you have any suggestions on how I could photograph it better? I'd like to hear them.

Very pretty! I think it's just a matter of having the best lighting possible to get a better photo -- the one on your mannequin is fine!

Love this necklace! It really appeals to a wide audience- perfect for sales!
I've always had luck dragging my props outside to photograph, as annoying as it is, it may work well for this pieces.
Maybe try laying it flat and photographing from a sharp angle, so the focus is mainly on the buttons and disks, rather than the chain? Just a thought!

It's really beautiful, and I'm so happy to have found your blog :)

Nice background! ;)

If your problem is grain, it might be that your ISO setting is too high. Find where you set it on your camera, it should ideally be on 100, but 200 can work at a stretch. The higher the number the 'crunchier' your image will look. Having it as low as you can make it will give your photos that clarity you're after.
