Treasure from the Box!

For 'Macro Mondays' theme of 'Trinkets'.

 

For some unknown reason I seem to have a collection of costume jewellery that must have come my mother's side of the family. It's stored completely unsorted in a variety of small boxes and bags within a cardboard box. This week's theme was a great excuse to dig into the contents to find someting small enough - a small pendant on a chain, and a 'silver' trinket box resulted.

Now further decisions. Do I photograph the items as found, or do I go through a cleaning session - photographed as found!

But the biggest difficulty was getting the lighting to bring out the colour of the 'stone' - isn't the lighting always the most challenging aspect?
