Third time's a charm

This was my first try.
I didn't like it.
For starters it was too long and it seemed to be lop-sided right in front.
I had initially wanted to make this a three strand, so I strung three separate strands.  But when I started to put them together 3 seemed too bulky.
This one got 'snipped'.

This was try number two.
Much better balance but way too short.
I felt like that guy who keeps cutting the table legs, one at a time and never really gets it level, until it's as short as a coffee table.
How did I get it this short???
Plus, I'm not sure how I feel about how I had it come together at the focal bead.
This one got 'snipped'.

FINALLY, a winner ;~)
I love the length, I love the balance, I love the colors.
And I didn't let that third strand from the first try go to waste.
I decided that I would like to have a matching bracelet,
since it was already strung and all ;~)


What do you think?
