Melon-cut quartz rondelles...

Yay, found out that it was probably buggy software that caused my camera to crap out on me. I bought a card reader and that has done the trick very neatly. I like the camera just fine -- Kodak -- but, uh... yoo hoo, guys? Your software is buggy as batshit and the fact that there is no way to get hold of you is not a good way to conduct business.

BUT... I am back in my business. First photo of first beads. I got melon-cut quartz rondelles at the bead show on the weekend. Only two strings, alas, so I will be selling these by the each -- and coming soon in a necklace or earrings or bracelet near you. Seriously, they are cute little things.




Interesting -- you can see the cut lines better in the reflection -- a nifty little photography trick I thought I'd pass along... especially given I just now invented how to do this.  
Yay to the guy at Staples for helping me out and explaining things so I understand. I also made his day -- he'd never heard of the things my camera was doing. My computer guy says the same thing: whenever I come tearing in in a major panic, Anibal tells me he learns something new he never knew before about computers because mine is always doing something completely different.

Thanks for looking!

Great news! So glad you got your camera to work. Mine is starting to cause problems, and I can't afford a new camera right now.

Those are pretty beads.
