    You make the most interesting bracelets! I knew that was a building right away- it’s awesome! I think the black lava rock is a difficult stone to work in to a piece, but you got it perfect!

    It may have been a challenge, but worth the effort! The building & keys are tied together so well with a color palette & materials that support them–wood, lava, natural elements. I like the contrasting lighter waxed linen you used with them too. I think this came together marvelously, and you should be very happy with the results.

    What a unusual combination of components. You find the most interesting ceramic pieces and use them in unexpected ways. Great design!
