This bracelet is very sophisticated! I was stunned at how well the classic fresh water pearls combined with the chunky curb chain. I, myself, would've never have done it BUT I'm sure glad that Aki did! I'm relatively new to jewelry making so I'm also very thankful for the close up pics and clear directions. Thanks again for the beautiful new direction Aki!

Very nice updated version. Although I am an old lady, I don't wear pearls. I just never really liked them. But this bracelet is something I would wear. It's chic. It doesn't remind me of an old spinster with 20 cats! I am going to make it for myself. I have chunky chains in silver that I didn't know what to do with. They were too much just as an entire bracelet. But this is perfect. Thank you.
