    LOVE IT!!!
    I used browns and purples and chunky pieces.
    I really like how you played up on Hoot’s big eyes with the yellow and lavendar and the shiny beads. Yours is so light and free with the dangles and the open chain.

    Thanks for all the warm comments, ladies!! HUGS!!

    Julie, I had mine lying on the table with the bead clusters being rearranged daily before I finally figured out how and what to attach. :) In the meantime, you posted yours so I was trying really hard to make sure I didn’t use the same components as you! :) I was going for more of a brass/copper with purple look but my lapidolite has a lot of yellow in it so I had to let that come out in the design. I really liked your necklace! You stuck more with the colors I was hoping for but didn’t achieve. :)

    Becky, I still love my piece and wear it proudly. But I SO love the light and airy look you have achieved. It’s so flighty… like bird flight… I don’t know how to describe it but you most definitely nailed it!
    I think it is SO cool that we take the same elements and create such different pieces of art from them! Go girl!!!
