Carole's Ammonite

My Aunt Carole went to last year's Tuscon beading event and picked up a bunch of ammonites. She asked me to make this one into a necklace for her and expected I'd drill a hole or something and stick it on a chain. Well, I've never been able to do anything the easy way, so here's what I came up with.

The necklace part is done in garnet, citrine and labradorite stone chip beads. The ammonite is held in by all the tiny glass seed beads I stitched and wove around it. It should arrive at her house any day now. I hope she likes it!
