Hope you get that sorted Jayne, sounds very painful.

Usually infected Cysts don’t repsond well to antibiotics due to the enclosed nature of Cysts, the antibiotics don’t penetrate well enough to clear the problem. Hope you get the definitive treatment you need!

Good morning - really must focus more today! I’ve written my job list so will have to see how far I get with it.

Apologies for the plethora of brooches recently - I really made them to take to craft markets but as I have got them I might as well list them.


(Sasha Garrett) #646

@DeborahJonesJewellery I think they might be merlinite (its related to dendritic/ moss opal).

Morning all
Today’s listing

Deborah @DeborahJonesJewellery My guess is ocean jasper :rofl: but I know very little about semi precious stones! :yellow_heart:

Funny how 1 negative comment can out weigh 100 complimentary ones - it’s wounding to have your work not liked when you’ve put your heart & soul into making it. But not everyone can be pleased & usually it says more about the complainant than your work, I’d say!! Think about all the lovely reactions you’ve had, instead! :grinning:

My favourite approach was years ago from my Irish flute-maker when I was negotiating how I’d like my flute made to suit my playing. He said to me if you’re not happy with it sent it back to me & chuckled as he confidently said with a Dublin sound “There’s plenty to read what people say about my flutes, only take notice of the nice comments I only take notice of those”. My flute is awesome & I love it dearly - Those words have rung in my ears many times.

I’d refund with a cheery “Sorry, you weren’t happy with it” & look forward to the next sale!
Hope you’re feeling better about it :bouquet:

@MartinShackletonCeramics I had the camera out to do some product shots so thought I would take a couple of photos to see if I can help you out with the depth of field thing (although the flower thing works really well and does give a sense of scale so if you can’t change the depth of field on your camera stick with that). The only thing I changed between these 2 photos was the f number


that’s f29 which is the deepest my camera will do, the next one is f4.5 which is the shallowest

With the shallower depth of field the back of the rim, foot of the beaker and the rock its sat on are out of focus (its a sake beaker so about 5cm across) and there was an audible difference in length of exposure with the f4.5 being much quicker (but I shoot with a tripod so that doesn’t matter but if you were hand holding it might). The camera was set to auto focus and picked the bright patch front left in both cases, if yours is picking out the back of the rim you could try moving the camera away from the vase a little bit or (with most dslr) if you half depress the shutter release button you can force it to focus on the bit of your choosing and if you keep the button half pressed you can then reframe without it loosing the focus before taking the photo. (its a 28-105mm lens locked into macro mode shooting at iso 800 in case you wanted to know). Let me know if you want me to mess about with the iso rating.
Right back to product shots, I need to re angle my back drop and increase my exposure by the looks of it.
