    Very beachy. I really like all the neutral colours – they work so well together. Great job. I’d wear this happily. :)

    Lovely! I really like the use of the twine as a design element, although there isn’t anything I don’t like. Big fave!

    I also like the neutral palette and all the different beads used as found treasures on the beach. The leather adds that down-to-earth feel and was a nice choice–almost reminds me of a net scooping up all those goodies.

    Beautiful pendant, and you showed it off perfectly! This makes me want to put my toes in the sand and find a tropical cocktail to drink :)
