Polymer Clay Charm Bracelets - Alice In Wonderland

Well as some of you may know I'm on a little mini break to focus on getting some work done, but I did promise to keep you updated with my work in progress.

But first I would like to say a big thank you to Naomi of MrsMcIndoe for featuring me on her Thursday Showcase last week, you can read my interview here Thursday Showcase.  I met Naomi through Craftblogs Sunday twitter chats #CBUK.  A fellow crafter herself Naomi's passion is paper cutting, please do pop on over to her blog to find out more about her and her wonderful craft.

So I finally got round to putting together my Limited Edition Alice in Wonderland Themed Charm Bracelets.  It took a while deciding on the right combination of pictures for the image transfer on polymer clay but they are finally here.

This is my full Alice in Wonderland charm bracelet, featuring five character tiles with the original images from the Lewis Carroll book, antique silver charms and a combination of white and blue glass lamp beads to represent to colours of Alice's famous dress.

I have also created a combination of simpler themed bracelets, such as Alice, the Mad Hatters tea party, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts.

Now this is where I need some second opinions, as you may have read in an earlier post Trying To Improve my Product Photos, I have been working on getting my product photos just right.  Alas despite my best efforts and with the tiles being predominately white based, it has been quite a challenge to achieve a perfect white background with my charm bracelets.

I have however tried some adjustments to the photos with Fotofuze.com, here are some examples

So what do you think, although some images stand out after editing are they lost to the white background?  it would be great to get some second opinions and advice.
