The pendant is centered-so is the clasp-but still this necklace is asymmetrical. Can you see why? On one side I used a pewter connector between garnet and citrine beads to break up the expanse of apetite beads, and on the other side I used garnet, citrine, and silver beads. Still, the necklace is pleasantly balanced.

This is why it works: The connector is dark in value and dull in color. To balance it on the other side of the necklace, I used several beads that are lighter in value and more vibrant in color; the quantity and brightness of the beads on one side makes up for the size of the metal piece on the other side.
