About this design:

Ok, so I am not sure about this one. Decided to do something different and tried using some seed beads. Not sure if I am happy with the result, as I like everything to be neat and tidy and I don't think this is! Anyway, here it is...

    I like the fact that they aren’t ‘neat and tidy’. That is what manufactured jewelry is and I think that we shouldn’t aspire for absolute perfection. It is the very imperfections that make them more valuable in my opinion! The colors are great and the seed bead wraps add great texture. The center is asymmetric and offbeat, so what you did works perfectly. I like!

    I think the pendant is not perfect so your seed beads shouldn’t be either. :) I LOVE this!!!!

    This is a very uniquely designed piece of jewelry.
    This is something that you would find at a trendy boutique in Scottsdale, Sedona, or Tubac Arizona.
    I love it as it has such a contemporary flair to it. Between the silver and the blueish greens…very nice indeed.
