Grandma's Necklace: Beading Textiles

I felt this newest textile book needed embellishments, so I've been beading everyday.

I have been using gemstones from one of my grandma's necklaces that fell apart.  I've been carrying the pieces around for about 20 years, not knowing what to do with them.  When  I began beading this textile page, I knew exactly how to use them.

Now I am going through all of my vintage jewelry to see how I can use them for this project.
