Red Bone Hoop Earrings

I bought these in S.A. They had base metal earwires, linked with a jump-ring and a black seed bead. I refinished the red bone and refashioned the metal findings with Sterling Silver. I like the sideways placing of the subject but I have to be careful with the focus. The camera wants to focus on the front earring or the back one. It's difficult to get both in focus. I want more shadow around the corners but I don't know how.

I made this for my little cousin Acacia. Her mother had a navy wool beret at the same age. I thought Acacia should have one too. The little girl likes glitter so it's no wonder that we've become friends.
