About this design:

This one is out of my comfort zone by mixing metals. I'm not sure if it works but my boyfriend favors this over the total Vintaj one. I'm starting to get on board with it's colorfulness and the silver. Still not sure... What do you all think?


Hawaiian Rainbow 1/2" silk ribbon, 4mm coral, olive freshwater pearls, various Czech glass beads and seed beads, Vintaj charms and silver plated findings

    Very pretty. I understand about the mixed metals. I like the look but I have yet to achieve that look and like it on a piece. You’ve done it well.
