Copper tusk bead embroidered pendant


The centerpiece of this pendant is a copper clay beauty that I bought from Jennifer West.  I have FIVE more of her pieces, so the metallic fun will continue! I'm planning on doing some more elaborate bezeling on some of the other pieces. 


Step-by-step instructions for putting together a bead embroidered piece, including back stitch, edging brick stitch, and stack stitch can be found in the free first chapter of my e-book Every Bead Has a Story.  Chapter two has instructions for stitching a peyote stitch bezel, and Chapter three teaches the square stitch bail.  Additional chapters focus on altered surfaces, dimensional beading, found objects and unusual materials, and integrating bead embroidery with other fiber arts.
