Art Elements Component of the Month with Lindsay Starr!

It’s time for the January Component of the Month and this time, Lindsay Starr send us leather cabochons!  As usual I did not take a photo of mine before I started working, but this photo is from her post over at Art Elements!

In her post, she explains the elaborate process she went through to make these cabochons.  I chose one that, to me, evoked the sea and jellyfish!  Here’s my finished project.

Lindsay had sent along some extra coordinating components, and one of them was this tassle.  While I was originally going to make the jellyfish tentacles with beads, I decided that this tassle was actually a really good choice!

 I stitched the bezel using a really pretty delica bead that picked up the colors of the cabochon, and used the small size 15 beads to pick up the most subtle shade on the cab.

I was going to add some beads to the tassle, but didn’t do that yet.  I’m going to ponder it a bit first.  As for now, this is going to make a great ornament!  Check out what everyone else made, and thank you Lindsay for your imagination and providing this awesome CoM to work with!

  1. I love it Sue! I have a million of those tassels and it's so nice seeing one of them being used in something, not to mention the cab! Way to go using one of the really big ones!
