I've come to a conclusion: it's not worth trying to photograph jewelry at night, unless you've got a light box. At some point I will have to construct one...I've seen online the kind that use a plastic gallon milk cut the bottom off the jug (leaving the top and sides), place your item under the jug, shine light at the sides of the jug, and take the picture through the top (where you used to pour the milk!). It sounds a bit daft but in theory it should work. The issue has to do with light diffusion after all, which is why I can't take non-light-box photos at night (the flash bounces off the shiny beads and findings, creating glare).

It's too bad, I made some nice pieces is a six-strand necklace, very simple, just freshwater pearls. I didn't have enough strands of one kind of pearls, so I mixed two slightly different kinds (imo made the piece have a bit more dimension actually). To go with this, I made some earrings out of Bali vermeil reducer beads and wire wrapped top-drilled pearls. They're a tad heavier than other earrings I've made; will have to wear them all day to see if the weight is acceptable to me.

Will try taking pics tomorrow. :)
