Seed Beading with Cabochons

I’ve recently become enamored with all things seed bead – I love making beaded beads and have gotten into making beaded cabochons thanks to Sally Russick!  This is the latest one I have done!

 I used a cabochon by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Beads – it’s a rustic oval shaped cab with a matte finish.

 I made the bail using brick stitch (which I also learned from Sally on her video).  I just noticed the little bit of wispy thread I need to burn off!

 Finally, I used a brass toggle from Fusion Beads as the closure.  It goes really well with the blue seed beads I used.

All in all, I am really happy with this necklace. I’m starting on another using one of my smaller ammonite cabochons.  I’ll show you when I get started!
