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!
