Thanks. I was pretty happy with the results.

Here is a picture somebody sent of a setup they used for shooting jewelry. It's very similar to my "tent of seamless paper" setup:

That setup uses hot lights. You could substitute a pair of speedlights pretty easily. For use with speedlights I'd probably use rip-stop nylon rather than seamless paper since it would eat less light. You'll need a large-base light stand and a couple of boom arms, plus a bunch of clamps.
