    “Chunky bits” and leaves – what a perfect combination! I like the coconut heishi, too – it adds an organic look to the whole piece.

    Very lovely! I like your use of the shield and cross at the front. I like to keep the shield charms on hand for doing Parisian charm bracelets. They add an antique touch of charm.
