New Version of a So-so Necklace

About this design:

The third photo is the original design of this necklace. It was just too forgettable. I kept the chain and leather and the African jade beads just rearranged them. Did away with the geometric shapes and made a pair of ear rings. I like the new version better than the old.


copper chain, Greek leather, African jade, seed beads, niobium ear wires

    Little Round Chick,
    Oh yes indeed girl….this is very nice indeed.
    Love the color combo !!! I just love the way you designed both the necklace and the earrings. Chain with leather cord is the rage now and you certainly did both justice. Just really nice !!!

    I love how you changed it up, and got a pair of earrings out of it also! Both ways were great, but I do love the new look!

    Love the material choice and the lightness of the overall design: texture and movement without being clunky. This can be worn with a lot of different outfits.

    The new version is really pretty! Not very much wrong with the old one either, just a wee bit disharmonious and busy. I do prefer the new one, would love to wear it!
