Sorry, I think the curlycues sticking out from the top are awful. I would recommend adding more crystals of varying lengths at the bottom – it looks a little naked.

I like it. I’m planning to use pomander balls as my centerpieces too. If u don’t mind me asking, what size ball did u use? & how many flowers did the ball need?

I think the look great, the only thing that i might change is to cut down the stems on the curly peices, so that they dont seem so”leggy”. you did a great job.

I agree with taking out the curlicues at the top and adding more crystals at the bottom- maybe mix some clear in with the purple?

I agree with cutting down the curly-cues but I like them!  I think it looks really pretty!

I love the look with more crystals and without the curly cues.

I think its a very cute piece…


I think the little curly things are abit too tall, maybe doing them a bit shorter?

Also, maybe add alittle to the bottom so its not so bare?

My honest opinion, I think they need a lil something extra too dark lacking something I dont know.. def agree with the curly things on top coming off

I agree with PP that the curlies need to go.  Maybe try bumping the ball size up to an 8 inch to give the ball more drama.  The crystals would look nice if you added a different shape crystal, 3-4, leading down to the big crystal.  What are they hanging from?

And nice job!  I know that it is hard to put your own centerpiece together and get the exact look you want.  Trial and error.  Trial and error. 🙂

Personally I don’t really like the curly things sticking out the top.  I think your pomander and stand looks very classy and well done, but the curly sticks looks like a child’s art project a bit.  I would maybe remove those and add a few more of the hanging drops, maybe in a clear crystal or silver colour? 

ETA: Sorry I just read that you are not willing to get rid of the curly cues, in that case I would definitely make them much shorter.
