Time for another Component of the Month – this time Lesley sent us these awesome shell cabs/pendants. I chose a cabochon, I just can’t get enough of them!
The cabochon is somewhat shallow, so I didn’t bead bezel it, I glued it down really well and started beading around it. I wanted to invoke the feeling of the ocean, but underneath where there’s movement but it’s gentle and flowing!
I used colors that were found in the colors of the cabochon, and then added “tentacles” of size 15 seed beads and then size 11 seed beads – kind of an anemone look.
I used some awesome O-beads that I had picked up in Texas last year – they are sparkly and AB/mirror like – perfect for under water!
Right now I’m not sure what it wants to be so I’m going to leave it like this for a while. I was thinking either necklace or pin – but maybe it wants to be part of some kind of sea piece wall art? Not sure yet.
Please check out what everyone else made, and thanks to Lesley for providing such great inspiration!
