Hematite and Seed Beads

Feel free to critique the photography as well as the beadwork. I am still learning both.

The centerpiece of this bracelet is a hematite-coloured piece of aquarium glass. It is encased in a netting of pearlized seed beads and hematite beads. The band of the bracelet is a base of 3mm hematite cylinder beads stitched in right angle weave, then embellished with the pearlized seed beads. The clasp is a silver base metal toggle clasp.

This is a gift to a friend. She is very high on my prayer list just now. Life has been giving her some rough punches lately. But she is a survivor and will bounce back to higher heights.

Unusual way to photograph jewelry -I like it. The top photo could be brightened up a bit more.

Sistren Pearl,

Thank you for the return visit and the photography advice.

When you say brightened up, do you mean to add more light? Would I do that with the flash on the camera or with photo editing software? I want to show the pieces off to their best advantage.

Bless Up,
Lady Roots
