No studio time today per se, but I did work on several projects that required computer time, mostly in terms of translating the artwork to a form I can fabricate in one way or another.

There is a LOT of photo processing and website updating I need to do as well. I think I need to do a double focus this week: finishing up a couple of things in the studio, and working on the pics and sites.

Do you use content management software or a HTML editor?

I think it would be called content management software- it's Adobe's Dreamweaver work-alike, so it more powerful than a pure html editor, plus it keeps track of keeping links sync'ed up, etc. It's not the editing the web pages that's the real problem- it's trying to figure out what to say, where to put what, all those pesky decisions. Similarly with the photos; lots of decisions on size, background, whether color correction will do or whether I need new pics, etc.

Nonetheless, I did do some of the photo stuff today, and may well have new web content within the week...

Just ran across this in tdj's journal: Tips for photographing jewelry.
It's mostly marketing to sell their tools, but the Make Blog occasionally features a home-made, cheap 'light case', such as this one, this one, this one, this one and this one, which could provide cheap alternatives.

Photographing your wares in an attractive, professional manner is perhaps the best marketing you could ever do. And with a bit of DIY savviness, it shouldn't even be expensive.
