I have been busy last night and today beading up a cabochon. I have had several of these skeleton lady cabochons for a few months now and I kept on thinking I have to do something with them.
One of the girls in a group I belong to on Facebook asked how you added a bail to a pebble bead that she had beaded around to make a bezel. So I decided last night to make one of the cabs I had up so I could show how I create my bails.
I finished it last night but then decided that rather than doing step-by-step photos I would try a video, not my first time doing a tutorial on video, so I had a go this morning. After three takes I had it right and then came the tricky part… editing on my MacBook and uploading it to Facebook.
I stressed out, had tantrums and finally figured it out and got it uploaded. I know Colleen has watched it, added her own bail to her piece and I am now anxiously waiting to see how she got on. I really love our little bead group on FB, it is great to have people provide positive feedback and constructive critiscm on your pieces. It is also a great place to swap suppliers and best offers deals for beads.
Below is a photo of what I finished up in the end, and I will be selling this one on my website and if you buy it you will also get a free pair of earrings made with the same swarovski crystals that are in the pendant.
I hope you like it – I am now working on ideas and colourways for the other cabs I have and I also have some Baron Samedi resin cabs on order too.
