Sometimes making earrings isn’t nearly as hard as making the pics.
Took some experimenting to get these photographed to true-color. Tried a bunch of my usual spots; in direct sun, in shadow, on a lawn chair arm for partial shadow, among others. But this one came out the best. It was taken propped against a board fence, so there was some shadow and a slightly different angle of light than my other pics. Why this one came out so well in comparison, who knows. It was also partly cloudy, so timing of light and shadow above may have been a factor.
Anyway. Purples! 🙂
