What a big difference the new camera makes. With this new camera I can adjust the white balance which I think makes all the difference in the world. I like the clean white background in this picture. It really makes the beautiful shade of blue in these apatite teardrop really POP. I've had these tiny beads for a while, but had trouble making anything with them because of how small they were. more than once when I was stringing them and twisting the wire, the top of the bead would break off ruining it.
