Latest project - browbands

I had a request - someone asked me if I could put real stones in a browband, they are into crystal healing and wondered what a browband set with stones would look like

I made 3 to begin with Lapis Lazuli, Tigers Eye and Green Aventurine . They are all 6mm stones set on 5/8 width leather, the tigers eye and pearl are on Dk havana and the Lapis Lazuli & Aventurine are on black
I also had a request for a swartz pearl - so I thought I'd post that as well
I have bought amethyst, rose quarts, garnets, mother of pearl, jasper and a couple of others but haven't set them yet

What do you all think, Like to get some feedback before I try to start selling them ( they would be about USD $50 - obviously if someone wanted real pearls or sapphires it'd be more expensive ) .
Could also do a range of birthstone browbands - what do you think ?

They are very nice and I think you did great job.

However (and please, don't take it as an offense, just my personal opinion) I wouldn't get one for my own horse, because each has just too many stones on it (although I really love tiger eye stones and jewelry, have some for myself). I'd rather go for something with less stones and more "painting" on it. I mean something like other color curved line with small stones on both side on distance from each other. Or something like hint of drawn flowers with the stone in middle of each. I know I'm not the best at explaining things....

They are beautiful Nutters! You need to add some silver into the mix.
