Dear friend, bead artist extraordinaire and glass bead maker, Kandra Norsigian, was down from central California for a workshop with Jonna over Memorial Day weekend. While she was here, I took the opportunity to shoot some of her wonderful glass beads. The color and saturation of these tiny pieces of art are a delight.
I placed the beads on a reflective black glass shelf, blocked a few inches above the tabletop, then lit them strongly from the left, directly on the “horizon line,” with a reflector on the opposite side to just catch the edges and add a bit more dimension.
