Someone came to me with a pendant with a pretty jasper stone and asked if I could do a bead wrap around it. Sure thing! Only, it was already set in a silver setting. I decided to bead right around that sucker anyways. The silver really took attention away from the stone, so I thought a matte black would be fitting, and bring the stone to the forefront. I used sz.11 delicas for the bulk of the beading, and 15's in some areas to make the tension a bit more tight.

Here is a before and after collage, hope you like it!

The black really does bring even more focus to the pendant than before. It looks amazing. Great job.
