    Both are beautiful. I prefer the one on the left because the large blue beads mimic the sky so well. Lovely.

    I think it’s so cool that you had a custom pendant made! It is beautiful. I prefer the one on the right because the red beads bring out the red in the lighthouse. But both are fantastic!

    I really like both, but prefer the one on the left because the pendant is the star of the show. However, I feel like the pendant on the right looks like an after thought and gets lost in the wrapped beads just at the top of the pendant.

    K Ralston says:

    Both of these are beautiful. I prefer the one on the right because I love the big green crystal and the cluster of beads atop the pendant. More complexity and interest, at least for my specific tastes. But you cannot go wrong with either.

  5. Stingray
    Stingray says:

    The seed bead cluster is nice because it brings out the red of the lighthouse and blue of the water, the earthy beads bring a more somber/serious tone to the piece.
    The aqua terra looks great(like little Earth globes)matching the sky of the pendant and VB wire highlights the earthiness of the lettering. Overall this one has a ‘lighter,’ more cheery tone.
    They both look great. Is it a two-sided pendant?

    I like both but if I had to choose one it would be the one on the left. I have a passion for aqua. Beautifully done.

    Stingray- the backs of the pendants are unfinished so ca be used as aroma therapy

    I like both options but lean towards the left one with the blues as well. I like the bead cluster above the pendant on the right one though! It’s really cool that you can use the pendant for a aromatherapy!!

  9. Crystal Canary
    Crystal Canary says:

    Wow, tough choice. Both have great appeal. I like the opaque Aqua Terra Jasper with the pendant, but maybe in a smaller sized bead. The larger beads seem a tad too big for me. The red Czechs & crystals work well in that chain. With that said, I also like the brown beads on the other as they look nice with the lettering in the pendant. I like features from both of them.

    Robin…it’s a toss up…I like both equally as well. Why, might I ask, is there a question?

  11. Robin nursechick
    Robin nursechick says:

    Jane when I originally posted the first pic with the nest on top, I posted C a no piece of another chain with some brown in it. I got some suggestions from others- so I decided to try those ideas ( without buying additional beads). So … I like both but I’m not sure it’s what I want B it to look like. I’ll put it away and come back to It later.

  12. sweetjane
    sweetjane says:

    Robin…that’s a good idea…to put it away for a bit and come back to it. You can get all of our opinions…but you’ll know because it will be clear which one when you look at them again.

  13. Beady Little Eyes
    Beady Little Eyes says:

    Just looked again. I think the upward pointing of the lighthouse and the color of the sky blue beads draws the eye upwards into the chain. Lovely.

    Left. Just my preference. Both are very nice! We
