    Yes! Yes!! Let me give the first thumbs up on this one. This necklace has the right name. Very versatile is spot on. I’m feeling the combos of pearls, rondelles , bicones, etc.. -a great way to use some leftover items. I’m going to make one also. Thanks for sharing, Gina.

  2. Beadaholic
    Beadaholic says:

    I love this! The fact that it’s long/short is a real plus! Great design and components.

    Wonderful necklace and use of so many components.

  5. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    Versatile is certainly the best way to describe your necklace. Great use of the mixed components. Love it!!

    Welcome to the world of asymmetry! It poses a fun challenge every time you do a design. Really lets you play outside the box! :D
