Starting a new bead art neckpiece

This is a follow along project. I will take as many pics as I can, sometimes I just get into the beading and forget to stop!   I spent a few days cleaning / reorganizing the bead room and found things long forgotten! The center piece is a piece of Australian Opal, in matrix. It is a beauty. I love the flashes of red when it is in the sunlight.

Here we go.
