Gemstone Meets a Pearl

About this design:

Bought a string of tumbled gemstones during a business trip to San Diego. Wasnt really sure what to do with them until I started exploring freeform peyote beading. These seemed like the perfect choice for freeforms. To add an unusual element, incorporated luster gray perals as drops. Simple design for a sensational style.
