    I love the whole bracelet! The turquoise and green with the yellow and gold is so dreamy. The green ceramic beads are to die for. This is a winner!

    Ditto to what Pam said! Your embossed and patinated focal is great, and your choice of beads really brings out it’s beauty. A fave!

    This went right to my faves. Its a beautiful piece. I’d love to make a necklace sort of like this with those new necklace thingies I saw somewhere. Forget what they’re called. Great work.

    I should have said embossed focal instead of pendant. Guess I should wake up before I comment ;)
