Also, I do understand your distress on beads that look great in the hand but terrible in a picture. It happens to me quite a bit. I have to remind myself that the image is usually enlarged significantly and therefore you see detail not otherwise seen. In fact I never undertake a description for a bead until I have studied an enlargement because I often find flaws that were not noticed earlier. One of the problems with an enlargement though is that a flaw often looks much worse than it actually is.
Here is an example of a Phoenician era head pendant (circa 500 BC), that looks much worse in a picture than in the hand.
