    If you want to challenge your students, opals and mother of pearl are also difficult to photograph.

    Cool! I'll see if I can get some of that, too! Might challenge myself, too!

    My grandmother has gold watch with a mother of pearl face - that may be just the thing to prove testing!

    Thanks for all the help and kind comments, everyone

    Mom wore a pair of earrings I've never actually seen before today! - Guess she's still got some tricks up her sleeve.

    They are smaller, gold half-circles with pearls in between. They look like spirals. Super cool. I will get photos later today when she removes them. - Or, see if I can convince her to "pose" for an ear shot.

    Ear shot incoming! (and Mom letting me do an earshot is impressive in itself). Here are the earrings Mom wore today -- hadn't seen them (ever!) before. They are a trio of little gold loops and a pearl sits in the middle -- pretty fun and a neat little pair. Mom has the blessing/curse of really small lobes, so small jewelry looks normal on her, and larger size jewelry looks pretty royal!

    Again, a pair probably purchased from JCP in the mid 90's - lots of things my Mom bought were with her employee discount when pieces went on extra clearance, so there are a lot of unusual/fun little things that sit in her jewelry box.

    Those are cool, Andrew. I imagine they are light & easy to wear on the ear.

    I used to have this problem when I didn't size my photos smaller.
