    I don’t see a problem with either design. I may be missing something. I’d prefer toggle clasps since lobster clasps are very difficult for me with my shakey fingers, hands, and arms.

    I love the bracelet and all the details. I love the square bead- you must have a huge stash of farfalle beads! I love the way they give that extra color surprise.

    Love both of your designs sweetjane. Your Día de los Muertos necklace is great – love all the little bellflowers and the tiny skeleton.

    I like both designs too. I’m curious what is bothering you about the bracelet. I like the single chunkiness of one side and the balance the multistrand side makes. I’m going to have to buy some peanut beads. They really create a neat texture. And the necklace is so cool! The color above the crown really draws the eye and the tiny skeleton is a nice detail.

    So funny! I just showed this bracelet to my husband, telling him what a great piece it was. That was before I read your description. I like the composition and I really love the square bead. Great job! And, I like your necklace, too!

    SweetJane, I have no idea what you don’t like about the bird bracelet. There is not one thing that is wrong with it! Balance, shapes, textures are all perfect. I’m with Becky–do not touch–it’s a wonderful piece! :)
