Does anyone use neck forms or a model for their jewelry jury photo?

I am a mixed media jeweler.  When I lay my pieces on a light table or even suspending them I do not get good results when taking pictures.  Does anyone have success with using either a neck form or a women's neck or wrist when taking a photo for jury?  My pieces just do not look good laying flat. See More
