I have made a few jewelry pieces that I photographed. Some of them I posted here and here.
After talking to friends and acquaintances, one of whom bought one of the necklaces, they have told me that it is really hard to determine how big a piece based on the pictures. One friend gave me a dumb look when I told her the piece was a 2 inch circle, she has no idea how big an inch really is.
My friends gave me the idea of taking a picture with a coin in it to give a relative scale to the piece, but that seems kind of un-cool or boring. I like the natural setting that I have in the pictures.
So my question is this, do you have any ideas how I can give people a better idea of size? Is hiding a quarter in the picture the best option?
Thanks for your help
