I saw this call for entry awhile back, and the first thing I thought of is that it's so hard to photograph beads!
Your photo looks great. Best of luck!
I have a textured shino heart that Jeff thinks I should enter... maybe I will let him do the photography.

Hey Lori, thanks, I think it will be a fun book
Michele,you should totally do it, just think about the kind of photo you would like to look at if you were looking through a bead book..... I worked on photos all day, they are really hard to shoot, that is for sure!

Vicki said...

Beautiful! Your beads will definitely make it!
The glazes are so lovely. The top bead is like looking into a cool shallow pool.

A photo that's very pleasing to the eye. Well done :)

Tracey Broome said...

Thanks Vicki, yeah that glaze reminds me of the water in the islands
