I decided to use most of this set in my design along with a couple of natural stones... a really cool piece of black agate and a red creek jasper round. Because of how much grey is in the palette, I used Vintaj arte metal wire to make the beaded links. The copper elements, including that cute little gingko leaf from TierraCast, pull in the warmer tones from the palette.
