Really like the design. Simple but still has elegance.

Nice execution of the design. I like the ability to hang longer necklaces in this. I wish I knew the dimensions of the piece. Usually the grain runs to a point at the top not the bottom, but it is a very striking use of the maple. Thanks for sharing this with us; you should be very proud of this work.
