    This is way cool – love the asymmetrical style! I’m struggling with a piece right now – I don’t do asymmetry well….

    CCS: I don’t do asymmetry easily either, but I love it. It takes serious effort for me to get it ‘right’, ’cause I tend toward patterns… for this one I made the stone links and rearranged and rearranged until I got it as I liked, then connected with jumprings.
