Bead Boardwalk
My name is Julie L. Walker and I own The Bead Cage in Kettering, Ohio. For the last three years I have had the privilege of serving the Miami Valley, in Dayton, Ohio. In those three years, I have also sponsored “The Art to Wear Fair.” I have been taken by the art that I have seen in my corner of the world. The beauty of the things that people have created and realizing how limited the audience is at any given show. Six months ago, as we planned our 4th Art to Wear Fair the idea came to me about an online auction site for artists. Since I have so many talented people in my family, I thought if I could get them involved that we could create the dream together. Each of them had so much to offer to the business and together we have brought it to fruition. Thus Beadboardwalk.com was born! We do not wish to take away from any venue but, add to the list of venues where artists can go to present their art. THE WORLD! Come and travel with us and let us take you across the globe where there are no limits! Thanks to my daughters, Shannon, Lindsay, Monica Walker. My sons and sons-to-be Dorian Ray, Chris McDonough and Misho Jovic and my best friend/sister Marie Prego for believing in the dream!

Jewelry Photography Techniques from Table Top Studio
Taking good quality pictures of jewelry for most is an unsolved mystery. However, there are some simple techniques used by the professional, which even amateur photographers can use to obtain dramatic results with minimal effort. The following examples show the basic setup that should allow anyone to achieve results they can be proud of.

These images were all taken using an Canon Digital Rebel digital camera. The basic setup we used included an EZcube™ to soften the shadows and eliminate glare, while providing a clean and clutter free background. We used a TableTop Studio Light Set as the light source, equipped with true color daylight balanced compact fluorescent bulbs as the main light source. We also used acrylic risers to provide reflections of several pieces of jewelry for an added professional touch. (More details on the equipment can be found at the end of this page).

The keys to good jewelry photography are sharpness, lighting, exposure, and in the case of gemstone photography, trying to create some sparkle. www.tabletopstudio.com/documents/jewelry_photography.htm
