Here's a tutorial on setting up a small lightbox for next to no cost. Should be plenty large enough for shooting cabs and jewelry.

 I would suggest that instead of the tissue paper described in the article, you use parchment paper. It's stronger, won't dissolve if it gets wet and is an excellent light diffuser.  My experience with the tissue paper is that it's much too fragile. Parchment paper can be found at a grocery store usually in the baking supplies aisle.

Hi Jerry

Thanks for the links. I saved both. The camera link wow I thought that I had pushed all the buttons on it :dontknow: Not even close.

The lite box is a can do. If I am able to pick up a table top tripod Sunday and have some time to play my pictures should improve a lot.

Thanks Again
