My parents were visiting for 2 days and I finally remembered to ask my mom for a piece of jewelry in order to attempt to photograph it. I used my light box to do so. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to "mount" the ring on something because it just lying flat on the cloth was just way too "blah." I ended up using a binder clip under the cloth and a twist-tie to keep the shape of one of the handles of the clip, then slipping the ring over it. Here's the best of the bunch. I'll be the first to say that I'm not too happy with it. I blame limited time and materials (and a dirty ring) to a certain extent, but I would like to get advice on how to do a better job in the future.
