I've had these leaves for several years, and just yesterday got around to designing a piece around them. They started off as earrings, but told me they wanted to be a lariat instead. Would love some feedback on this unusual piece. Donna Nova handmade leaves in glass, Grade AAA amethsyt rondelles, sterling silver, delicas, Swarovski crystal pearls, Czech fire-polished two-tone rounds, czech Druk beads, Celstial crystal briolettes, Grade A amethyst rounds.

How does one solicit reviews/ feedback on this site? I have noticed that only a few items posted have actual reviews. I am new to this particular site, so if there is a better place for me to garner feedback, I would certainly appreciate the direction.

Beautiful work!!  Love the lariat look -- no clasp and a great opportunity to make great dangles for the ends.

Beautiful work !  

 Re: feedback....perhaps try some of the popular beading magazines or some lapidary publications ? How about  also approaching some high  fashion magazines that put the high-end jewellery together for the final model photo shoot....they'd have to have a good idea of what is "favourable"   design-wise and what the market wants etc.

Thanks for the tip. fairlee. I've bene slowly intorducing my work locally, and on another beading site. Seem to be getting favorable feedback, which is encouraging.
