Free Form Peyote n Real Gemstones

I purchased this coral at the Quartzsite, Arizona market several years ago.
Do you see what I mean about planning one thing and doing another? I wanted to practice the faux porcelain beads, but ended up stringing the coral and turquoise.
I purchased the turquoise pieces through Rio Grande jewelry supply used what was left of the coral to string this piece.
Below is a free form sculptural peyote necklace with a bone and ebony button closure. I used Chinese jade as well as other multi-colored jades and turquoise.
