Victoria – I agree with the comment on your bravery. I liked the fold forming and would have liked to see the entire center without the bar, it distracts my eye from the design. I also had the question about the weight of the front of the bracelet making it hang backward on the wrist, and too many different wire designs. All that said, I do like the different fold forming and textures you have done.

Victoria, I enjoyed viewing this piece and am impressed with all your rivets (how did you do those with little star heads?). My main opinion is that there seems to be too much going on, in terms of design features and metal colors, and it needs more “integration.” I, too, find the bar to be a distraction and too fussy (but that’s my taste….). In the photo, the silver seems too bright, in comparison to the copper and (?)brass. I wonder if making the base connector pieces (through which jump rings are inserted) a little smaller or less obvious or rounder would help — just a thought. I also wonder if having a more round (rather than oval) focal element would be good?
One of my favorite websites for design and process analysis is .
All the best, Judy Bjorkman

Helen’s comment is good. I thought about the bar but just skipped over it. One wants to engage the eye in movement over the piece and the bar seems to stop visual engagement. How about a slight change? The bar could be made into a very slim, elongated oval. trimming the straight ends down into Vs at top and bottom. Then the design element would work with the shapes used in the bracelet and would be only a slight change.

Looks like a nice piece. However, the photo isn’t large enough to see the detail & the devil is in the details. It’d also be nice to see the back of the piece. If this is done with cold connections, it’s not apparent except for the one poorly closed jump ring between the last 2 pieces on the left.
