Latest Piece - not sure about this!

I'm really not sure how I feel about this piece.  I've already changed it, so this isn't the most recent picture of it.  I changed it from this because something just didn't feel right.  I was going for an asymmetric look, but also something very different from my typical "wire wrap some beads and then add chain."  I needed to use some of the wildly colored glass tube beads I bought from Happy Mango, and I'll admit, I was emulating Lorelei Eurto's fun funky style.  I love her work!  But its her work, and I should stick to my own style.  I'm just not sure I've found it yet...
But here's how I changed the piece - moved the chain to the "back" of the necklace, and moved the flat frosted glass and green glass forward.  Still not sure, but its going on the Etsy site!


  1. I was looking at this on Facebook yesterday Grace when you asked for thoughts and couldn't quite pin it down but I was wondering about swapping the top orange tube and flat purple bead over...? Might work might not... I really love the 3 colour combo - would never have thought of that.

  2. I like the tubes myself. I really like it. Once you have a style of your own, its hard to branch out. Just change little things if you want to grow and expand your style and explore new area's. You can go asymetrical without it looking like Lorelei's. Try it in a monochromatic pallette. Or with just a little asymetry to it. YOu will figure it out, but yes, always stay true to who you are!!!

  3. I think that's made all the difference Grace -you've gotta go with your gut feeling!
