Default Any better?

Ok gang.....I've tried to be a good listener, and I have appreciated all those who have helped....!!
This is a bracelet she made with copper, a few charms, like the green synthetic jade, she bought, and of course the copper wire, but she wrapped, or twist it, into a chain, she even made the claps herself out of copper stock and added the design, and of course the lampwork beads she created herself. I have 4 spots on the site to show her bracelet, how do these shots work?

Thanks!

OK Eddie, I don't know that the reflective surface it is on here is as good of an Idea as it is for the individual pieces. It looks too complicated and detracts from the actual composition of the chain. It is hard for me to tell (without concentration) what the piece actually is. Please don't take this wrong, but it may be better for a piece like this to be on a solid white or black background to avoid this effect.

I must add however that this is one of the nicest pieces your wife has produced. It is very artistic, simply beautiful work ! I hope this helps with your selection of backgrounds.

PS My suggestions prior to this were based on individual peices, and so far they are looking nice on your site. Happy Holidays !!!!! Frank

Back at you Frank, thanks.
I think I got Ma on board to showing the pieces in total, with maybe one with the shallow DOF, she likes that look, but I tried to explain to her she KNOWS what the piece looks like already, viewers don't....

perfect. I really like the white background and reflective surface (aluminum foil?). it is your best set yet of your wife's art.

Well yes and no....I mean, I did this set, it was more a self-portrait type shoot, I put my camera on a tripod and focused on a stick, I put the camera on the timer, ran over and took the sticks spot myself. I wore some of her nipple art, you wanna see?

The lighting is best on #2 and #4, while DOF is good on #3. It's got to be a difficult item to photograph and I think you need to keep at it.
