This is what you see - my new Cypher necklace made of polymer tubes and sterling silver chain.
This is what I saw - Cypher necklace on white plastic on a wooden chest near a window, me perched, heals hanging off the edge of the chest, using my feet (see the blue socks?) to hold a piece of mirror to bounce the light.
I sometimes wonder about the difference between what gets portrayed on the internet (and in print and wherever) and reality. And I was struck by the quite un-glamorous, un-artsy, un-cropped images I took while trying to photograph this necklace. Comical but real.
