Not sure if I like that two-strand pearl bracelet. With the citrines, the two-strand design works...because the citrines catch the light...you get a nice glowing effect even with only the two strands. But for whatever reason, two strands of pearls don't seem "enough" for that piece.
I tried adding on another strand, just literally adding it to one of the loops in the two-strand clasp. That aspect of it does work...using a two-strand clasp for a three-strand piece, it doesn't look funny. But I'm looking at redesigning and restringing the entire piece. It does look funny having two of the strands in a two-to-two connector bead and one strand just by itself. Darn.
I have some three-to-three connector beads left so that's my plan...take everything out, make a more cohesive design and shlep the three new strands into the three-to-three bead.
Right now it's a train wreck, I put some 8mm Swarovski roundelles in the new strand (these are nice) but the overall look is too undefined.
