I'm a Northeast girl with a Southwest bracelet. I've had this design for a while now. I think it's time to do some tweaking around the center. Any suggestions?

really like the blue/brown you have going esp w/the lock. what about a pop of peach or stone or funky ooak in the "clay" or terra-cotta family? can't wait to see what you decide!

love it the way it is!  sunny but if you really want to tweak it, do either more turquoise or more brownish-grey...

It is really beautiful as it is. But I understand the tweaking urge Smile Maybe some orange hues?

I like your turquoise agates which are one of my favourite releases (I posted a picture yesterday of a bracelet using some of mine). How about adding a brown desert, or some orange?

Hmmm, all good ideas, thank you! The suggestion of orange made me think of the orange armadillo. I think that the armadillo is only found in a small part of the American Southwest, but it might work. Smile

I think some terracotta or coral would work lovely for contrast, but I'd wear it just as it is  sunny
(shame the LE corals are so limited or I'd suggest a couple of those!)

Grrreat idea.  You could also fire up the torch and make some turquoise and terra cotta beads. Wink

The bracelet is beautiful the way it is but here are some suggestions:

Maybe the trollbeads dream catcher. A little pop of orange or red may look great also. Trollbeads has that new red sponge coral.

 Hug Hug "Busy" is an understatement. Moving is one of the greatest stresses in life. Try to take it easy.
