    I’m loving this. The combination of the leather and the seafoam chips works really well together and the patinaed focal is so cool.

    I have many fond memories of Gulf Shores. My mom would take a vacation almost every summer to the beach– Pensacola when we were very young & Gulf Shores as young adults. I like your design. It’s the type I’d have to see & then remember to use it. So, into my favs!

    Yes, ditto to all again. One thing I noticed is the perfect spacing between the two strands. Wow!

    I think this is a knock-out piece! Very stylish. Love the textural element of the chips paired with the leather and metal. The patinated filigree atop the blank perfectly unifies the piece. Nice!! :)

    Thank you all so much..this was one of those pieces that was made on a whim because I put 2 pieces together and just kept adding to it. Sometimes these things could be some of the best things you make!
