Jonna’s teaching her ‘Tiny Tubes Necklace’ class this weekend, so we have lots of friends here, doing gorgeous work.
‘Tiny Tubes‘ is a technique she developed to create delicate necklaces using metal clay. Her ‘Tiny Tube Roman Era’ necklace is a recent example. The piece includes silver metal clay, 24K gold, pearls and flush-set CZs.
The piece was shot in my Escondido, CA studio with a Nikon D300 camera and 60mm Nikkor Macro lens, lit with 500W and 250W softboxes plus reflectors. A jewelry harness was used to shoot the piece. Minimal post-shooting PhotoShop work was used to enhance the gradient background.
