New Jewelry

Well, maybe "kind-of" new jewelry. I made these pieces months ago but became hesitant about putting them out for sale.  Not sure how I would hang the little worm pendants - a ribbon necklace might work for them like I did with some of the others below. The oyster shells are real.  I collected them from my favorite beach and thought it would be fun to give them their pearl back. So what do you think?  Do they need more "umph" or does a satin ribbon fit the bill?  It would be good to hear what you like about them or what you might change about them and why AND I really appreciate your feedback!

Boy, I keep going back and forth and enlarging everything trying to figure out which one I like the best! They are all so cool. I think my favorite is the oyster shell, the one with a gold tone, no...the necklace with the key... no ..the skull, no! definitely the oyster one?! LOL!
Those little worms are adorable! I think they would look nice with a ribbon that matches the green....I'm so glad to see you posting some of your fabulous art! I've been missing you!

I love them all!!!
They are all so very cool...
Maybe putting one bead of some kind (wood) next to the mail wonderful bead you made... that's my only thing I might suggest!
I love them all!

I think adding some thin cord with the satin ribbon might give it a bit more oomph. But you really don't want to do too much more as these awesome eclectic pieces should stand out on their own as focals! Pearl

Love them all! Those skelly hands are to die for. Like The Beading Gem said, adding a thin cord (maybe in a coordinating color?) work be great.

I think these are all very unique and very cool!

Cindi, Pattee, Elizabeth, Pearl, Deb and Sue - Thank you all very much! I really love the idea of adding a bit of cord to them - perfect! The skelly hands were very fun to make and I have a few more in the works - same for the oysters.
I really love you guys for taking the time to give me feedback!
