I like the attempt at stepping outside the box with placing the pearls along the side. All too often beaders will just string something in a traditional manner and never look for new options to push their craft into the area of art. However, I am not sure that it works completely here. Maybe if the pearls were strung completely around, gradated to a taper at the top, or if it had some sort of accent at the top, then it would look more finished.

However, I applaud your efforts at trying something new. Keep looking for options that will push your designs further :) And, never make something "ordinary" :D
