What inspired this design? I recently learned how to incorporate jumprings and crystals. I decided to create that design as a watch band.
How did it come together? For example, did you plan it out or did it define itself once you began working? The design defined itself as I went along. I had to re-do it a couple of times until I was satisfied with the color coordinations.
