About this design:
I've been collecting assorted colors of freshwater and shell pearls for a while now, and decided to make a colorful pearl necklace that resembled a 'traditional' pearl necklace. I added the tourmaline nuggets and onyx mosiac stones for an added twist to the design for they seemed to mix in naturally to me. I've noted in other designs for pearl pieced other beader her use gemstone, metal, or other spacers. To follow the colorful theme I decided to add crystal and Czech glass rounds as spacers.
