    Very pleasing and balanced; good component choices to match and complement the heft of the ceramic pendant. The aqua Czech glass rounds work really well with this design. I really like your earrings, too.

    Very nice! I love the ammonites which bring your theme to the fore. Good color combinations and use of elements–aren’t the Czech beads from Lima awesome! Great job! :)

    I really love your mix of components! Not to take anything away from these (because they are awesome!) but you might want to try branching out next. Try having some of the beads hanging from the strand instead of along it. You can build from here with all the cool shapes, colors, and textures of the Czech glass beads Lima Beads carries. Keep up the good design work!
