Creating with Cabochons Blog Hop

This hop is by Sally Russick from the http://thestudiosublime.com/blog-2
Thank you Sally for hosting this blog hop.  This was a big challenge, since I never did bead embroidery before. My first piece was using this a glass cabochon , seed beads,  fire polished beads and crystal drops.

My second piece is the same pattern as before, but I used daggers on the fringe.

  1. Your necklaces are beautiful and I never would have guessed that they were only your first and second bead woven bezels!

  2. Both pieces are lovely. It looks like you have mastered your new skill.

  3. I cannot believe you have never done this before! Beautiful work!

  4. Oh Jasvanti,
    I find it really hard to believe this is your first time with bead embroidery because those two pieces are simply marvelous! I hope you liked it enough that you will make more. Now you made me wonder what tricks you have up your sleeve for the sequin hop . . . Great Job :-)

  5. Lovely pendant . The blue cabochon looks really cool. It`s fun embroidering around cabochons , and I have stumbled upon such lovely creations visiting your blog hop reveal :)

  6. I never would have guessed it was your first time beading a bezel! Lovely subtle color choices. Great job.

  7. Excellent job for this being your first time! They are both very pretty!

  8. Those are both lovely when I sat the linkzy picture I thought the shell was part of the pendant and wondered what you had used to get that neet tezture!

  9. For your first time you did a fantastic job. They are both stunning!

  10. I love how many people - like you - braved new techniques and did a great job! Your necklaces are great and make me want to go to the beach! That first one looks like I could just dive right into that lovely cab!

  11. It is so rewarding to try new techniques, your work is beautiful.

  12. Such pretty designs, you did a great job for your first time bezeling a cabochon.

  13. Wow! You did an amazing job for never having used those techniques before. I bet you are hooked now! I know I was the first time I did a seed bead cab design. Your creations are lovely!

  14. Great job! It is amazing how many of us wanted to learn something new. The colors for your first one so remind me of being on the beach and just watching the day go by. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  15. Hi Jasvanti,
    Both of you pendants are beautiful and you did a really good job on both. My favorite is the pink one.

  16. I love the blue one. It is so incising.

  17. Great job on your first bead embroidered cab. I hope you enjoyed it and will continue.

  18. Great job, very pretty cabs, but I really like the blue one.

  19. Jasvanti, you did a beautiful job beading around both cabochons and I love how you added the daggers! GORGEOUS work!!! Thank you so much for participating is the challenge!!
