    Default Looking for feedback

    I dragged out my beading stuff to help pass the time as I recuperate and was hoping for some feedback from you wonderful folks. My very favorite bracelet is a mixed round and keshi Tahitian. I have a SS keshi bracelet I don't much care for as it is a bit short, so I decided to make a mate for the Tahitian one with mixed SS keshi and FW rounds. I am torn as to which route to take.

    I have one made up with larger rounds and mostly silvery keshi which I think reflects the way the keshi in the Tahitian bracelet contrast a bit with the rounds. But I am not sure the pearls and especially keshi aren't too big, particularly toward the middle.

    The other one is smaller rounds with more creamy keshi. (The sizes of the rounds on that one are a bit mixed up because as I was arranging the strands to take the picture, the knot in the beading wire came undone and spilled the pearls. I just strung them all back on in a rush since it is the colors I am wondering about - I'll try to do a better job arranging the pearls if I make it for real).

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I can also put the smaller, creamy keshi with the larger rounds, I just didn't have enough of the large sized rounds to mock up both and the silvery keshi are way too big for the smaller rounds. (Oh, and my cell phone camera gave me a weird pink hue toward the edges so I cropped to the center part which has the more true colors)

    I love the strand at the bottom because the keshi seem to hug the rounds. I think it makes a for lovely, integrated, intimate look.

    Gee Boo, I hope you feel better fast!

    Thanks! And I am improving but I admit it is nice to have the down time which is conducive to playing around with my pearls

    I can't take credit for the original Tahitian strand - that one came from PP. But as I said, I absolutely adore it so I thought it could do with a partner, LOL. It looks like there is a slight preference for the bottom strand so I'll start there, but I may go ahead and make up both. I could be over the top and wear all 3 when I'm feeling exceptionally bold, I suppose. Thanks for everyone's input!!

    I really like it, breaks up the round shapes nicely and makes your eyes want to check out each little keshi
