Thank you to all who gave their suggestions regarding my grandmother necklace. All the comments were very helpful and I think I will incorporate a few of the suggestions into a new design.
Congratulations to socmama. She is the winner of the following sterling silver earrings. 4 mm round Mookaite beads highlight 10 mm carved round wood beads. These are really great for everyday wear.
Socmama will be contacted via email and have 3 days to get me her address so I can mail out this prize. A new winner will be drawn in the event of a no-reply.
Thanks again to all who participated.
