I have 8 strands of black cherry pearls. Any ideas on what to do with them? I think I'll make a several-strand twisted choker, but I could do something a lot more interesting.

maybe multi strand them with another color (silvery grey maybe? or cream?) of pearl or bead.  Would make the strand more interesting.

I'd use a couple strands, some grey pearls and some donut stations to weave together a larger piece of jewelry.  But I like some heavier pieces.

Those would look striking with amethyst, garnet or even onyx and silver beads - maybe some of those neat Rajasthani beads that Fire Mtn has now?

Thanks. How on earth DOES one work donut stations into a necklace? Use them as beads?

I take two threaded strand of smaller beads (seed beads usually) and thread the through in opposite directions (one from the top left to right the other from the top right to left, it makes an X in the hole of the donut) with some bigger beads spaced holding the two stands together it makes a base to work other strands in.

If I had a camera or a scanner I could just post a picture and it would make instant sense.. but we have neither at the moment.
