Contextual photography

Thinking about how to photograph my jewellery has got me noticing things about photos and pictures lately. While reading through a book on Tiffany jewellery, I came across the picture below and really liked the way that the layout and set-up of the photograph creates such a dense context for the pieces that are actually being viewed. I think I need to try this! I do however, think that one needs to be carefull with a set up like this because it could very easily become too much and detract completely from the pieces that are the focus.
