    Stunning!! How long did it take to design that?
    It’s so well balanced,but still has the organic look. White tee shirt,jeans and this piece..poof! Instant casual chic! ;)

    Love the colors and the ethnic feel of the piece. What a good idea to use two strands that coordinate so well!

    This final version is the third. The first version had white Howlite sticks which really did not look like a well coordinated design. The second version eliminated the Howlite, had silver findings and a pendant. It was also designed for both strands to have chain. (See picture below) The third version was essentially like the final version except the sticks on the side of the inner strand were higher. This was my first double strand necklace and it took a bit more effort.

    I thank everyone for their comments and welcome any and all.

    Wow, Ed, this is a real beauty ! The touch of matte recycled glass really makes the other stones sing. Love your use of the stick shapes and where you chose to place them – - and I totally agree that a two-strand design is trickier, but you totally made both strands look unified.
