About this design:

I finished this piece and realized there is something 'off'. Can you see it?
Does it really matter if there is an uneven number of beads.?

Components:

Rosewood, silver spacers, white stone (?) all stash, tierra cast clasp (LB)

    No..asymmetrical design is all in trend right now. This is nice.

    This is a gorgeous bracelet but that extra stone would bug me to no end. But then, I can’t bring myself to do asymmetrical pieces either.

    I honestly didn’t notice until I read your post about it. It’s very pretty. If it bothers you, try a charm of some sort attached with a jump ring to the lobster end. It might level it out for you. You could do a regular charm or you could make a charm with a couple of beads.

    I Love asymmetry! It looks great as-is…I wouldn’t redo it.

    A nice bracelet; maybe that’s what I’ll get – is progress. 28 days ago my dr. pronounced me with diabetes. But – I only have to take the pills. And watch my diet – which I have NOT been doing. Well, 2 days ago I discovered the Metformin was doing a ‘tango’ with my muscles. I started to really hurt and didn’t know what it was so looked it up and sure enough – Metformin. Quit taking it and started this a.m. walking and mini-fasting; not eating until noon. It’ll realy knock off the weight and that’s what you want to do with diabetes. No advice needed; I’m keeping my dr. informed of my actions.
    Just posted this in case it’ll help anyone else out there to get out of that recliner.

    To my eyes, the larger ‘loop’ of that great TierraCast link gives the illusion that the bracelet is symmetrical :) Is the white stone Howlite? Lovely and looks great with the rosewood!

    About the bracelet and the # of beads – it depends on the person’s perspective who sees it; some will love it, some won’t; can’t please everybody – and I like it – LOL. I have found in EVERYTGHING in life that – as long as you don’t hurt anyone – do what YOU want and there will be others who agree with you and those who won’t

    When worn, I bet you couldn’t even tell. I like it.

    An uneven number of beads? Not a problem in my book. I love subtile asymmetry of the design.
    Great design, love the wood beads and your white stone is magnesite. :D
