This piece is going to be gorgeous! People have made a lot of good points for both options. I think that it'll work out well either way.

That is stunning! amazing

That is stunning! amazing beadwork!! I can see the southwest influence, but 'fringe' would bring that out. I think the pearls keep it closer to Art Nouveau? this is simply gorgeous!
