Today is the reveal for the Beading Around a Cabochon Challenge hosted by Sally Russick! She not only hosted the hop, but she provided video tutorials for us newbies! She is so incredibly generous and I can’t thank her enough for doing this! I make cabs, but never beaded one and I’m so excited to have finished it! Here’s a link to the cabochon section in my etsy store!
I started out by using one of my own cabs that I really love – it’s made with pale aqua glass, silver foil and frit. I have a lot of fun making cabs because you have to get them just right on the mandrel and it’s a very zen sort of thing for me to do.
I am really happy with my choice of beads, and how it turned out! I’m going to either use a blue suede cord to hang it on, or a chain – I can’t decide yet, I think the blue suede would be best. I can’t bead a rope yet, but hopefully I’ll learn that someday!
I already started working on another for my mom!
Please check out everyone else’s blog to see what they made! I know I can’t wait. And thanks again, Sally!
