I love that background. It adds a little interest without overpowering the beads.

I think it's nice to have a background, then you can refer and compare the items and then get a better understanding about the bead!

I think the background....especially the rock, compete with the beautiful beads. I am not sure of my profile so....I'll be anonymous!

Love the superimposing of the beads on the rock and beach setting! The subtle colors of the sand, rock and ocean in the background really makes the colors in the beads *pop*!

I like the rock...but think that the sand and ocean backdrop compete with the bead - I was kinda busy looking at the background thinking, hmm what's that instead of looking at the beads. (The beads are wonderful though.)

Janel, I like it but it's a tad dark for my liking. It competes with the beads a bit.

I like the backdrop. The colors in the background go well with the beads. I LOVE those beads!

I just found you on Twellow and started following you on Twitter. That's how I found your blog. I am going to check out your Etsy shop now and drool over your beads! :)

I like the idea of having a "riser" like the rock to add height and interest, but I don't like this background/arrangement for these beads. I don't see them as being completely beachy colours, but the blue in the sky matches almost exactly the blue in the beads, adding little contrast. The beads themselves are so gorgeous and highly polished that I think they deserve a more refined setting. Try a flat beach rock, maybe, the smooth kind you might use to skip stones. But I really like how you have surrounded the beads with light to bring out the coloured core vs. the clear shell, and those awesome bubbles!
