Lighting when taking pictures of lights?

I work for a Christmas lights company, and I'm trying to improve pictures on our Christmas rope light. This is what we currently have:

Here's an example:

http://www.christmasli​ghtsetc.com ...oductCloseup/blue28​15.jpg (external link)
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


My question is, what kind of setup do you use when you are shooting lights? In this instance, we only used the rope light itself. Do you think this successfully gets the product across, or should there be other lights around the product? Has anyone dealt with something like this?

Thanks!

Well, from a buyers perspective, I like a variety of photos when I shop online. I would want to see what the lights look like on in the dark, and on/off (doesn't matter) in a well lit setting. And if the lights come with the light reel (pictured above), show that well lit, so the buyer can see what it looks like.

Hope I helped :)
