Gorgeous! It fill the area that to me always seems to be missing something. Smiley

mosaic artists have a very particular idea about negative space, right?  i say this as a person wanting to get into mosaics... and i notice how much fun can be had with the spaces around the actual designs.


PS:  i really like the necklace, too, and i like the idea of a bare tree, because those are also a part of life.

And here is a photo of the one I made last night I really like the way this one turned out.  I decided to play a bit with different wire weights and vary the twisting to better replicate a nice knotty old tree.







now to work a bit more on hinging one that could change the beads out (thank you for the mini hinge tut. wtp! I definitely had the hinge part right from my previous attempts it was the dang clasp that was getting me Cheesy )
