I had the distinct honor of making backgrounds for the winter edition of Handcrafted Jewelry by Beadwork Magazine. It's still on bookstands now and into the new year. If you pick up a copy and check out the 25 cool mixed media projects, you'll see these backgrounds used for photographing the handmade jewelry. I had a ball working with a very light touch (not at all like me!). The artwork had to be minimal, in order to let the jewelry take center stage. It was a great challenge and the folks at Beadwork are really awesome to work with!
