Gemstone donuts presents a challenge to the new beader. How does one attach it to the necklace? There are a number of ways and Jen chose this one where the seed bead covered beading wire loops the donut.

The wire then feeds through seed beads and the first unakite gemstone chip before separating to form the rest of the necklace. The colour of the gemstone chips picked up on the greenish hues in the donut thus tying in the whole design.
