Would have been cool to see her split the hanging jewelry with her hands so that you could see her face.

I agree, for a portrait, I just do not see enough of her face.

Thanks, I appreciate the comments.

However, I have to ask why do you feel you need to see her face? I am not trying to argue, just curios. For me, the shot works as-is: face slightly out of focus (deliberately), defined by its most important elements - eyes, nose, lips. It rather hints than reveals... and adds a bit of a mystique. It is less about a portrait of the girl, more about a moment between a girl and jewelry.

It all depends on the intent of the image. Here, the jewelry is in focus and covering the face of the girl, so our attention goes to the jewelry and the girl is incidental. You say it's a moment btwn a girl and jewelry, but since she is looking at the viewer, and not the jewelry, I would disagree. Compare it to this stock image, for instance:

This is what I would call a moment btwn the girl and the jewelry, whereas the girl in your image appears to be focused on the viewer, but her face is obscured, so we don't get a real connection with her.
