I needed some "artist shots" too, besides taking photos for the pattern. So this works.....
BTW, the necklace I'm wearing was custom made for me by my cousin-in-law who does incredible lapidary work and silver-smithing. She was even featured earlier this year in lapidary journal. Very unique, high-end and very cool stuff.
There's a link to her website on my website if you want to see more.
