Whether you have never done bead
embroidery, or you are an old pro- you are sure to learn a
few new techniques with this necklace. This project is not
difficult but gives you a beautifully intricate piece of
jewelry when you are finished. The bottom focal piece is a
handmade polymer clay leaf cabochon coated with resin,
mimicking the look of dichroic glass. After the pendant is
finished, you will add the unusual fringe and chain, created
with a whole bunch of Mini Duos.
Both cabochons will
be bezeled with two different techniques, then the round
cabochon will be embellished in a spiral pattern. That
spiral is reflected in the various stitches surrounding the
cabochons. The woven neck chain and fringe are an easy but
unusual technique. We will also be discussing how to make a
fringe that hangs correctly from a pointed component.
