I took it apart. I moved things around endlessly on my bead board. I shortened it.
I crafted embellishments for the different charms to make them stand out more fully. Finally I came up with this:
Generally, I think it works a lot better than the original. I think it could still use some more beaded elements or something to give it more bling though. What do you think?
