    Oh my goodness! I love this!
    I agree with Crazy Chick! Simple design but very pleasing to look at with the stone patterns and beads! It has everything it needs!

    You’ve hooked me. I went to school in Swaziland and have very fond memories of visiting Botswana where my best friend lived!

    Your passion carries through the design and you have created a stunning piece.
    Contrast and scale are the second best elements of this piece. The first, the stunning stones!
    Contrast, the smooth of the stones contrast with the texture of the metal beads. Next, the size of the stones contrast with the size of the small round metal beads. In what appears to be a simple design, is, in reality, very complex and adds movement to this piece. Scale, the overall size of the stones gives presence, the size of the textured metal beads is “in scale” with the large gemstones.
    A stunning piece! Thank you!
