Process: Shooting Jewelry

As you may know already, we are in the middle of working on a website update over here.  I've got my best people on it ;) and I am so excited for it to be done and up! I scrounged around high and low for a fun background for my photos that would mesh well with the look of my site.  I normally would have shot something outside, incorporating natural textures, like wood grain, or stone, but because of all of the damn snow, that was impossible.  What I ended up with was this book cover with little stick figures of the running of the bulls in Pamplona.  I'm afraid I was in such a hurry to catch the light that I have no idea what the book is about!  
I love the deep fabric texture of the surface, I think it makes a great contrast with the luminosity of the jewelry.
At first I worried that the graphic lines would be too distracting from the jewelry, but I think it works.
What do you all think?
