Gemstone beads are a versatile style enhancement to any ensemble. Dakota Stones White African opal beads in the chip and round style are used together in this necklace to create a wonderful look full of dimension. As this necklace shows, there are so many ways to add gemstones to your designs. Beyond simple stringing, you can add them to silk and knot between them or put them on wire for fun beaded links. This project explores both techniques.
