Peacock bead embroidered pendant

Available!  Leave me a comment

Don't ask how many times I had to do and redo the peacock feather fringe on this piece!  Actually, it wasn't really too bad, but I did have to change the spacing to make it cluster the way I wanted.  I'm very happy about the setting that the peacock focal now lives in.  Dorothy Supri of Skyline Beads made him.  Dorothy has trunk shows on facebook if you are interested in her work. 

This pendant will be available for sale.  Before it heads off to the gallery, leave me a comment here and I'll get right back to you.  Your comment won't be visible since all comments are moderated, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

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.

Do you have anything tutorials available that teach specifically about using dominoes? I’m having trouble with them!

Hi Ellen! I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but in the last round of peyote stitch, I switched the turquoise blue beads from size 11s to size 15s, but kept the greenish beads at the original size 11. It takes a LOT of rounds to cover the sides of dominoes!
