    I would say both yes and no as an answer to your “keeper” question.
    I really like the yellow blue and red “bottom” part of your necklace. I like the semi-matched but asymmetrial design.
    I also like the top half with the soft greens and the pop of pink.

    What bothers me… and maybe what’s causing your uncertainty… is that they don’t seem to go together. I think you have the beginnings of TWO DIFFERENT necklaces here. One has the bold primary colors. The other is pastel and gentle. I’d suggest you KEEP both “halves” but re-work the details for each one.
    Hope that helps… :)

    Julie, I agree with your suggestion to FW! This piece has the makings of two totally different, but equally beautiful necklaces! So, it’s a keeper with adaptation!
