DIY Lightbox for Photographing your Jewelry

I’m sure most of you have heard the concept of a ‘lightbox’. A lightbox can be as simple as a box with a light over the top (and sides) to properly light the subject you are photographing. DIY lightbox for photographyWe use a light box here at the bead warehouse to photograph our products and it works wonders!  A lightbox is superior to a single light because it ensures that all angels of the piece are receiving adequate lighting.  Click Here to read an ingenious article that I ran across on how to make your own lightbox.

    You’re going to adore your Jel-jelly, Jigeda, Giri-Giri, Djalay Djalay or Yomba, whatever you want to call them in your language. Waist beads are also known as belly beads, waistlets, or beaded waistbands. Fall in love with these quality pieces that serve a variety of purposes, from keeping you aware of your weight changes, to giving you a boost of confidence in your femininity, to simply being a pretty accessory – a necklace or bracelet for your waist. In my tradition women wear waist beads to stimulate their husband sexuality. Adornments made with gemstones carry further significance, as the stones typically represent qualities such as love, strengthened relationships, purity, balance, and energy.

    Your waistbeads can be worn underneath your clothes in private (as per tradition) or shown off at the beach and pool, and some styles can be worn during daily showers. For some styles, it is suggested to remove them before your daily showers. They can be cleaned as needed with gentle jewelry cleaner.
