    Gorgeous! I love the way it all comes together in perfect harmony. I love SAKI’s components. The clasp of theirs you used is astounding in this design-it (the clasp)almost looks made just for it, as if it was waiting for you to come along with just this design to showcase it. =^__^=

    Another stunning design, Laud – - the clasp as focal is just perfect here !

    Thanks, ladies! I thought the clasp was too good to bury behind the head (or under long hair). Problem I had at first was matching the color of the bronze with other metal accents. I lucked out when I found six bronze beads in my inherited stash. Have to thank friend Nancy once again.

    The blue goldstone adds a lot, I think, but I couldn’t catch the sparkles with the camera. Subtle stuff like those flecks of gold, as well as the luster in the blue tiger eye, just don’t translate to the screen well.
