    For starters, I really like the beads you chose for the copper! This is definitely a one-of-a-kind piece! In a good way! :) I think it looks balanced and well made and I would wear it. It looks Mahvelous, my dear!

    This is fabulous! Why are you even wondering about it? I keep looking at the pics to see all the details. It is a wearable piece of art. And I would be proud to wear it and show it off! :) I’m imagining it on a deep chocolate cashmere sweater. oh my!
    BTW: I went back and looked at your other designs. I’m so impressed. I took a couple wire-wrap classes at the local bead shop and I nearly twisted myself into a dizzy tizzy!

    Add my name to the list of those ladies in love with this, Nancy!!! The asymmetry of your design creates a gorgeous necklace! Love the color combo, too! :D

    OK, just for fun: Cover the chain side of the necklace with one hand. Admire. Now move the hand to cover the circular side. Admire. Remove hand and notice how perfect the piece is. Admire. 8)

    I would have trouble taking this piece OFF! I would want to buy a whole new wardrobe to match and earrings that would echo the beautiful copper wrapping and green gems. You go girl!

    Nancy – everyone else has said it – but this is fabulous & I’d love to wear it. When you sell it – triple the price because this piece moved from ‘great jewelry’ to a true ‘piece of art’. You’ve nailed it!! Don’t change a thing.

    Gee Whiz Everyone….Guess it won’t go into the closet. :D

    Thanks for the compliments and comments, I really appreciate them. Seems like I hit a wall periodically and can’t “see the forest for the trees.” It’s great to know I can get input from all of you when I reach this befuddled state. :D

    Thanks again Everyone.

    I love the design! If I had to add/change anything, I would round out and spiral the very top of the copper wire piece (where it connects to the chain) into a more circular/spiral shape to match what is going on at the other end. Great piece!

    I think it’s great! There’s something extra striking about the copper against the colors of the stones.
