What are you most proud of? The "natural" relationship of both the gemstones and their shapes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Because these irregular shapes are consequentially also irregularly drilled, some care must be taken for them to lie flat on the necklace -- even to the point of discarding a stone that would have too much of an overlap over the next bead in line. I tried a drop of glue to keep one such stone flat on the beading wire, but that also had the effect of making the stone immobile which I didn't like, so I relegated it to the "leftover bead" box to be wired into some other project at another time.
