Sometimes the Product Photographs Help Me to Really See Things Clearly

I'm trying to fill up my ArtFire store, so I'm taking pictures of my finished pieces. Sometimes when I look at the picture on my computer before uploading it to my store I find myself less satisfied with the finished product and take it back to the work table. It's a matter of seeing it out of context and with more detail - just like the buyer will see it online.

Here's one example - this is a pendant I purchased and then did some slight embellishment to by adding gold patina paint to the outer ring design. I then strung large hole beads in brass, silver and copper finishes on to a velveteen necklace.

After I looked at the picture I was going to use to list the item in my ArtFire store, I felt it still looked blah. Back to the workbench. I added a Swarovski flatback crystal to the center and some Marble (white) Vintaj Patina Paint. Here's how that looked.

I think I'll add a few more coats of the patina paint after it dries overnight and then do some clean up at the edges then list it.
