Green bronze bead embroidered pendant

Available!  Leave me a comment

Instead of starting with the focal, this time I started with the beadwoven bail!  The one I chose was a previously stitched piece that you can learn more about at the link above and below.



Now, that's not to say that I don't absolutely love the focal!  I do, and I've been saving it for something special.  It's a resin-coated polymer clay piece made by my friend Mary Anne Williams Knapp.  Mary Anne has online trunk shows that you can access through Facebook, but you better move quickly when her work is up for sale!  It gets scooped up with lightning speed.  I used some Miyuki drops on both an inner row and around the edging of this piece, along with some pearls and a lovely little raku bead by Amy Mealey of Xaz Bead Company.

My e-book, Some Assembly Required, 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.  Check it out if you're wanting to go beyond the basics!
