A bead embroidery pendant featuring a polymer clay cabochon


I recently bought some of these polymer clay cabochons from Mary Anne Williams Knapp at her online trunk show.  The colors are wonderful and there's a lot of depth to the designs, even though they are flat rather than domed.  I didn't mind the lack of doming at all...in fact, it allowed me to add fewer rows of peyote in order to get to the top of the cab.  Once there, I decided to fool around a bit with a decorative flourish.  Do you like it?  It's simply some additional peyote done with size 15/0 seed beads.  I'm planning on playing with this idea more and getting more elaborate, but on a plainer cabochon!


If you've never added fringe to your pieces, it's really easy.  I show you how to do it with over-sized beads and lots of pictures in the free first chapter of my e-book Every Bead Has a Story.
