Week 16 - Asymmetrical design

This week's theme is an 'asymmetrical design'. I thought, no problem! I did some quick research and found the following definition:

Definition: Asymmetrical design is typically off-center or created with an odd or mismatched number of disparate elements. When the left and right sides of the design are unequal it is said to have asymmetrical balance.

I had decided to try a pendant design several people on the creative wire jewelry group have been experimenting with, based on a tutorial one of our members had published in Step by Step Wire Magazine -

The pendant defined the rest of my design, using a Thai fish as my focal, and going with colors of the ocean stones. I'm still not sure if this is 'done'. I solicited input from Laura, who suggested it needed more balance on the right side, so I added the strands of seed beads, but I'm still not sure if it was 'enough'. This piece contains a myriad of materials, including amazonite, aquamarine, blue topaz, opalite, crystal quartz, czech glass, sterling silver, Thai silver, and more!
