Chatty wanted all focus to be on the cabochon, so she matted and framed it like a little picture, then added a tassel (using VERY small beads – it took HOURS to make!) and a simple cream and black triple-strand necklace (using mostly the same teensy beads used in the tassel).
Chatty is very pleased, but the test will be what her friend Mrs. S. thinks of it:
