Looks like lots of work. Good job on the detailing. Personally not a fan of the greenish hue of the metal. It also lacks a colour that would either compliment the whole or contrast with it. The metal is brownish green and the gems are brown and green - they blend in too much, don't draw attention as much (apart from their size). I see one small blue gem in there. That colour could work better.

Since this greenish brown colour is dark and cold something warm and bright could offset it - like orange. Green and orange are complimantary colours and orange would also work well with brown as a somewhat lighter hue of it.

Just an opinion based on color theory and directing focus from painterly/drawing practice:)

It was a lot of work indeed! Thank you for your opinion. I am quite familiar with the color wheel. I did not intend for this piece to be a piece of vast color differentials. This is a piece with hues of the same or similar color concept. This is also a dimensional piece and not a painting canvas. I personally feel that often times orange and green can give a piece a 'Halloween' feel (pumpkin) and that is not where I was going with it. This piece has dimension and color not visible in this photo. I have yet to see beadwork in a photo that is dead on the same in person. Many of these beads have facets and reflect according to light and angle. Several of the beads in here carry many colors on a single bead, like the Vintage nail heads in brown iris (browns/silvers/brass/purple/blue) and the tila beads in their green iris matte metallic (greens, pinks, golds). Anyway, off to work.

Oh, I see. There's the same problem with photos and scans not reflecting the way the light bounces off traditionally done drawings properly. My last works that have a lot of white in them that was meant to do that fell flat after scanning. i would add a glow filter like I used to, but I don't heave the software anymore.

Well, it doesn't have to be orange. Any contrasting/complimentary colour would do, but I trust you know from experience what will work and what won't.

Maybe posting a collage of photos of it with different lighting instead of one shot would help?
