Last year at the Madison Art Glass and Bead Show, I got several strands of beautiful African glass, including one very mixed, craggy strand.  I used it in a necklace with a clay pendant from Mali.

The pendant has three holes at the bottom, and I considered various things with that. Nothing felt quite right, so I am just leaving it alone. I love the length of this necklace and the fact that I was able to basically leave this strand of beads intact.
