What are you most proud of? That I made the pearls "the stars" of this necklace. My goal was to "frame" them with the tourmaline and gold spacers to point-up their beauty and not distract attention from them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sometimes less is more, especially with really nice beads. If you find some really lovely stones, let them stand on their own as much as possible.

Love this, I've made a similar design in years past with Swarovski crystals in between but I love the tourmaline!

Thank you very much. I love tourmaline (the rainbow gem) with almost anything.
