    I really like the concept of this pick. Is it just me or are puff squares really tricky to use in real life? I’ve flirted with buying strands before, but I only ever seem to use them in really small numbers. You?

    Wow Lauri. Love the pick. Colors perfect for me. Speaking of purrr-fect Hector is a beauty also. I have used the puff squares and used small rounds between them with ovals also. Haven’t had a lot of experience making jewelry yet but had a lot of fun and no real problems yet. (Except maybe I cannot seem to find enough money to buy all the stones I want, lol.)

    fun pick!

    I, too, use the squares for earrings, bracelets too.
    The trick with necklaces is use them more on the sides and not around the focal of center of the the design. The tend to not lay flat on the curve.

    Thanks Ladies. Like I’ve said before, sometimes a title comes to me first. I was surprised how the colors seemed to blend really well though, so I think this gave me some ideas. I haven’t used many square cuts either.
