Giveaway winner, and I got a new camera!

I just completed the drawing for my Oscars swag necklace giveaway and the winner is World's Edge Beads!  I will be emailing the winner with this information,  and will also post this result on my Facebook Page

I am sending out a huge thank you to all those who entered and left such kind words with their comments! I really appreciate your support.  I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to focus on my jewelry making at this point in my life. 

I recent news, I have purchased a new camera in an effort to improve the quality of my product photos.  The number one comment I hear from people who purchase from me online is "your work is so much prettier in person."  This leads me to believe my photos are not what they could be!  I am so excited to have my first Digital SLR camera and fancy macro lens.  I am hoping I can become somewhat proficient at using them!  My goal is to capture the depth and colors in my work with better clarity and make the photos "pop."  Here is my first effort:
 I think it is an improvement, but as I am a complete novice at "real" photography, there is still plenty of room for growth.  I am looking forward to learning.  Thank goodness for "Dummies" books and the internet!

Again, thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway!
