Macro Planet Photos Shot Using Beads from a Bracelet

My name is Can Tunçer, and I'm an amateur photographer based in Izmir, Turkey. Not long ago, my brother brought me a bracelet as a gift. The beads on the bracelet looked almost like planets, so I decided to shoot macro photos of them as “planets.”
The bracelet.
Beads from the bracelet.
I took a total of 700 photos for the macro project and each photo was created with a focus stacking technique. Here's the setup I used:
Due to my main job, the project took 1 week to complete. I used a Canon 6D as my camera and two IKEA Jansjö LED lamps for lighting. The microscope lens I used when taking these pictures is a Lomo 3.7x .
I previously shot macro photos of peacock feathers and backlit leaves that look like lava .
