Less is more, right?  Rather than work right around pearls, Japanese beader, Sapphirus, just accomplishes hemispherical beading around the gemstones.  I particularly love the openness of the beadwork in the stud earrings tutorial due to the use of short bugle beads. T

The earring posts are glued on.

The necklace tutorial looks more solid because no bugle beads were used. Lovely mix of silver and gold beads. You could do the beading on just the front pearls or bead on every pearl!

The necklace was inspired by this very pretty bracelet tutorial with beading all around the pearls.  You could also do hemispherical beading on either side of the pearls, in an alternating fashion.
