Serene (Again)

About this design:

I posted the first design I created to go with my Serene pick, but with only two Gaea leaves, it seemed unbalanced. I added a third leaf. What do you think?


Gaea rosemary leaes, green fluorite, aquamarine squares, Tila beads, Amazonite, African paper, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, brass spacers and clasp, seed beads

    Still serene and still beautiful. I like it better with this balance of leaves. You still have lots of interesting asymmetry with the beads.
    I have those blue African paper beads and I love them. They are very cool here as a contrast to the smooth stones.

    Laud: Love that you added the third leaf, it balances the whole piece out. Again, another knockout!

    Another gorgeous pieces, Laud! This one is my favorite of the ones you posted today. The color palette is so pretty and I really like how you have create a balance between the symmetry and asymmetry.
