Leather, Pearls, and Jade

Misha's grandparents brought me back a plain leather strap bracelet from their trip to Spain. I added jade and pearl beads strung on nearly invisible TigerTail, and then experimented with taking more exciting pictures. I like the effect of the blurred clasp in the background - created by focusing the camera on one of the foreground beads while in "micro" mode.

Also, I just realized that by sizing the photos on this blog in percents, I've been inadvertantly flooding the screen of the RSS reader version, so I'm going to try to work with pixels from now on.
