My lock came a week ago and I have just got round to taking a picture.  When I think of Africa, I always think of wood.  So I have used my woody beads and a few glass beads.  This will be a permanent bracelet for me. Very Happy

This is fantastic! I love the rustic, strong and calm feeling of it. It seems that the leopard has eaten and is now relaxing on its branch - reminds me of a Gary Larsson cartoon I once saw. I will google and see if I can re-find it Smile

The different woods are gorgeous.
This is the perfect environment to make the leopard feel at home.

Fantastic. These colors are colors I always reach for, so your combination really appeals to my choice of colors. Your beautiful lock is perfect and coordinates very well with your spotted wood bead.

Beautiful! Did you buy new beads for this bracelet or were the beads from your existing collection? It all fits together so nicely. Great design!
