Photographic Woes

I've been making a lot of jewellery lately.
It started as simple earrings but now I'm experimenting with chainmaille and making my own chains and bracelets.
The reason for not having posted photos earlier is that photographing these small items is a pain and a half; my poor dinky camera is... well... too dinky to focus properly on smaller objects and lighting here is a tad crap.
Cases in point:

Background/focus fail

Focal Point Fail

Lighting Fail

Shadow Fail
Prop/Epic Fail

So, i'm in the process of building myself a cheapo photographic light box, heheh.
Progress!

Lightbox a-la-cheap!

Once done, I have many, MANY pieces to photograph...

And this isn't even half my earring stash...
:D
