    You definitely have a knack for the asymmetric style. Love the way you put all the various links and beads together into a cohesive look. My eyes keep noticing all the interesting details.

    I’ve been putting off commenting because I was trying to find “just the right words” for this … but, well … this is magnificent! I love it … the design … the beads … everything about it is absolutely “right”. I have some kazuri beads myself, I love them, and the fact that they are made by women supporting their families in Africa. You’ve done the beads, those women artisans, and yourself more than proud. :D
