    Yes! Works wonderfully! What about a little bit longer dangle from the bead cap also?

    Thanks! I can lengthen the flower drop by re-wrapping and adding a jumpring.

    It looks gorgeous! I agree, the extra dangles are juuuuuust right, as Goldilocks would say. =^___^= I love the vintage-ey style of this piece, and it’s just so romantic looking! =^__^=

    Well, I guess I’ll be the one dissenting voice but then again I am a fan of less is more. I like the focal all by itself. I agree with Gail, I would like to see a longer or bolder drop from the bead cap instead of the dangles. It is beautiful whatever you decide. I tend to be kind of a minimalist so I think I’m in the minority on this one. I love the pearls because I’m a pearl fanatic.

    I seen the first one on Etsy and I liked it as it was, but Gail has a point about the flower drop :D

    I’m not a minimalist in the strictest sense but do favoror simple. HOwever, a dangle or two in just the right place, can add a spark. I like the spark you’ve added. I so love the peach pearls you used in this piece. Yum!

    Thanks for all the very helpful comments!!

    I am leaving the extra danglies for now and I hung the middle flower drop on a large jumpring hanging on the wreath instead of directly from the wreath. It hangs about 1/4 inch lower now. I took my third round of pics and they are on Etsy. :) Time to get on with other projects. :)

    It looked good before… but it looks even better now, w/the 2 small side-dangles.
