  1. Sooo hard to choose – they all are done nicely! I would vote for number two. Even though, there is not that much of preferring one to the other, I still had to make a choice, right? Still, all four of them are great!


  2. #2–But it was a difficult choice. I’m torn between the elegance of #2 and the wildness of #4. I love them both. But in the end, #2 is just beautiful. It has the simplicity of the peyote in the middle and the complexity of the stitches and embellishments top and bottom. Nice work, people!


  3. All four are beautiful, but my favorite is #2. Looking at the pic, it may already be on a fine chain? If not, it easily could be… and it would be a stunning piece of “wearable art”!


  4. I love the colors and the symmetry of small bottle # 2. It uses many different size beads as well as beading techniques to create great texture. It would make a very elegant pendant.

    You rock, Bello Modo.


  5. I like them all but my vote is for # 2 although #3 is really cute! I love the use of the sparkly Delicas in #2 it’s very ornate.
