I love cabochons, I have quite a pile of them. Therefore a blog hop using cabs seemed perfect for me.
This extremely fun hop is the brain child of talented and beautiful Sally Russick from The Studio Sublime. I love that little moon faced cab she used on her button!
Much as I love pretty cabs, I found an interesting specimen
at Goodwill . . .
Yes, its a bug in Lucite. It's actually quite pretty and I do enjoy strange things. Below is what I ended up doing. I was thinking about hanging it from the rear-view mirror of my car.
I love the way the light shines through it
I did some more traditional seed bead bezling as well with this pendant. Black onyx is soooo hard for me to photograph, it just reflects everything.
I also wanted to do some bead embroidery. I was thinking of rocks in a stream with water flowing around them when I did this piece. The cabs are some kind of shell (that I just happen to have a small pile of).
THANK YOU TO SALLY for being our wonderful hostess! I can't wait to see what everyone made. Below is the list. Happy beading.
Oh, and don't forget that tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day
