This piece is a collaboration, which is why it's in the glass bead section: I made the large glass focal, but Page Brunner designed and strung the necklace.
This image is one in which I posed the accent bead, which is a flattened oval, by positioning handi-tac underneath it. Another option would've been to display it on a necklace stand, but I find that distracting, preferring to use a perfectly plain background.
The beads on the left side of the image are poorly positioned, making it difficult to tell where the focal bead ends and the necklace begins. Bad or confusing composition like this should be avoided in jury slides. However, I probably spent about 30 seconds setting up the shot for the website—because it's so easy to reshoot later.
This piece was strung in January, 2004.
