    It would make a lovely pendant. How large is it? Or made in winter colors it would be a gorgeous tree ornament. Regardless of how it is used it is a wonderful design with beautiful craftsmanship. :)

    Jill this is fabulous! Nancy ideas are very good and depending on size many others things as well, a facal perhaps. It’s lovely whatever you decide!

    Great piece…I would use it as a focal, but not in the center. Can’t wait to see what you decide to do!

    What fantastic beadwork, Jill! Love the color — I also would like to know the size of the finished piece. A focal for a necklace or bracelet was my first thought or make another and have a pair for earrings (depending on size). :D

    Beautiful, I could see it as the focal on a ribbon necklace, or on a beaded lariat, only have it kinda to the side, with the strands hanging down from it from the side, maybe make it adjustable, so it could be slid up and down for either a choker or long piece that could be worn to the side or front….erm…sorry…babbling..just some things that popped into my over crowded head…

    Very pretty. I could see it as the focal piece on cream and pink ribbon with a few pearls scattered here and there held in place by knotting in the ribbon. :-)

    Hmmmmmm….. my wheels are turning!! Thank you for all your posts!! I definitely want to make it a focal, but I think I would like it on the side!!! But I also love the idea of making it into a lariat! Well…..we will just have to see!!
    I also made a green one, so maybe I can do both!!

    I like your idea of a “side focal” — ooh, and a green one, too! What fun! :D

    Cecilia~ I love your idea too!! I haven’t worked with ribbon…. How would you attach it to the ribbon? And how would you attach a clasp?

    Pendant, Jill!!!!!!! It’s gorgeous! I took a class called “Friendship Rings”. They’re similar. Everybody made a bunch. Some people exchanged theirs with each other…..friendship rings. They wear them in groups on necklaces…Some use silver chokers to string them on. One lady has hers strung on a viking knit necklace she made. They make a real statement.

    I’ve been on a seed bead kick, myself, lately. Seed beading is therapeutic for me. I’m wearing seed bead jewelry at the moment…..

    This is amazing, I bow to all the seed bead makers, it looks so complicated, and my poor old eyes, I don’t think I could do. I agree with the other ladies suggestions. It would look amazing as a focal. I also like the idea of using ribbon, that would be awesome!!

    This is absolutely gorgeous, Jill! I think all the ideas are worth considering…you could just make more of these and try them all! I do like the idea of the side focal. :D
