I agree that the background is a "little" distracting but basically because it has some design to it. If it was a solid grey or some other color that was neutral but different than any of the colors in the product, it would work. You do need some sort of background at any rate. The thimble picture is a good example of why.

Got to agree with hkmp50. Its a good comment. In fact, stone, leather, wood, even paper, they are all good as a backgrounds for those cute glass little objects. Problem is more on the composition. Here the line of the rock coincides with the catīs head. The stone's curve also, up to the right, adds nothing. That's distracting.
Here's another idea: ask your wife to make some nice and soft, not invading glass "backgrounds" that you can use. Who knows... it could work. You could add some cool effects lighting from the bottom, etc.
