    I like all of your chain-containing necklaces; it would be difficult to pick a favorite. The owls are so darling, the jade one is in my favorite cool greens and bronze tones, and this one is such a perfect summer necklace. Good job!

    It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I keep coming back to this one and Pearched. I think it is the combination of different chains and beads, asymetrical, but perfectly balanced!!!!
