ring-lightSamtian RF-600D 18 LED ring light (Amazon) – I just got this a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it!  A great way to get a fairly flat even lighting – perfect for step by step photos – even on a tabletop tripod.  I use it both with the flash feature and most often, just with the lights turned on. I even handheld it to use with my phone the other day!

  • 20160930_145846-01The leather bracelets that I use are from The leather is located under “straps”.  I prefer the 15mm.  The 10mm is a little thin for larger pieces and the 20mm is a little wide for smaller wrists. The magnetic closures are also listed under findings.  I use Loctite Gel instant glue.
