On Colombus Day, some buddies and I hiked Mt. Washington! I hate to say it, but thank god there was shelter on the top!

To Bead or not to Bead?

Here is a piece I had been working on for most of the summer. The coral I bought at Shell World in Key West, the quartz from Santa Fe. The beads, well, at a gem show, but I questioned whether to use beads or not. Most of the summer I spent contemplating these mother of pearl beads- would it take the attention away from the gems? Would it de-value my work? Would it make my work looks cheesy? I'm still wondering....
