I was asked to design a piece around these beautiful gold metal cabochons for my next bead-embroidery workshop that I will be giving in the next couple of months at Bogal’s (one of my favourite bead suppliers)…. and as the workshop is held at their place, I also wanted to use beads that I know can be found there (as they will be making the kits for the workshop)… so I chose to use ‘baby pillows’ which are actually one of my favourite beads to use for bead embroidery, because they are rectangular, flat and when sewn one next to the other they give this nice shimmering effect… I love them! :-)
So here is what I came up with: Black Sun Necklace
And this is how it looks when worn – I love how the fringe hangs!!!!
I will be designing a smaller version of this piece for the workshop itself and will be making it in silver and maybe some colour variations.
Was thinking of making this into my first tutorial and kit to be offered after the workshops are over… what do you think?
