I fell in love with this mermaid that my friend Sheri Mallery made, and I decided that she would be the centerpiece of my next pendant. Along with back stitch, I used some varied lengths of stack stitch (similar to fringe, but on the surface rather than the edges) and pearls to go with the seashore theme. The bezel uses a right angle weave edging, and some "corner" accents that are both taught in my e-book Some Assembly Required.
SAR covers making different types of bezels to enhance both regularly shaped and irregularly shaped cabochons, connecting your bead embroidered components with various techniques, unifying your piece with texture, and creating beautiful finishing styles.
