About this design:

    I know a lot of people who like the simple, earthy look. I think with any social medium that it’s “luck of the draw”. Some things get a lot of attention quickly and others, well, not so much. Unless you have an idea to re-up the design, (or unless you have a customer who says “I would buy this if …”, I would leave it be.

    It looks like a nice necklace; however, the photo of it on the form looks like it wouldn’t sit right on your neck. Maybe a picture of it on someone so others could see how it would be on them. Just a thought.

    I have to agree with Skittles mommy. Where the 3rd and 9th beads are falling in the first photo looks like they are awkwardly placed and might prove uncomfortable to wear … another photo might make it look differently or you may need to rework it slightly … perhaps by doubling or tripling the number of Bronzite beads between the Jasper ones would do it … it wouldn’t mean changing the length really just moving the Bronzite from near the clasp. Otherwise I think it’s a very nice simple design that someone should love. :)

    This is quite beautiful. And I love the way you combined the oval jasper with the round bronzite beads. Sometimes simple is better. I agree with what the others said too.

    I think Christine is spot on. More separation between the jasper should make it sit more comfortably, plus the individual beauty of each stone will be highlighted.

    Irina, I like this earthy piece very much! I do agree that by adding more bronzite beads you might give the necklace a different look. Or perhaps, adding a third element(wood or metal)? Just brainstorming…

    Thank you very much!!!
    I am thinking to add some gold plated spacers and more bronzite beads in between. I’ll cut it tomorrow:)

    I agree with the others’ comments, this is nice the way it is. You could try taking a picture with a darker background. Most people would wear this piece with a black or brown outfit. Nice work.

    Simple and lovely as it is. About it maybe sitting oddly on the collar bones: since women have such a diversity of neck sizes, shapes, and collar-bone stick-outy-ness (you know what I mean) I usually put an adjuster chain on necklaces like this so if it his someone awkwardly, they can tweak it until it falls just right.

    I love Jasper, this one I think would really pop if it was paired with red Jasper instead of Bronzite. Or perhaps a small red Jasper on each side of the Bronzite. That would still be a neutral but would draw the eye. Good luck.
