Oh, you managed to make so many beautiful, beautiful things with your mix! I like that they can all be worn separately or together for a variety of looks. Your designs are very pretty for the color combination and I think you used everything very well. I'm particularly liking that necklace with the mesh cording and how it fits with the main piece. Great idea, there! <3
