I thought I'd better show you the finished product using one of my first dichroic glass cabochons.
Just by coincidence I had been working on a right angle weave chain necklace made with Japanese rainbow colored beads. I was about three-fourths of the way done and I was feeling good about it. I had conquered RAW.
When I looked at my new cab and then at my new chain, I thought they complimented each other and so a new necklace was born. The bezel around the cab and the bail were made with peyote stitch. It feels so good to create something from beginning to end. (Well, OK, I didn't create the seed beads!)
My necklace is on it's way to a new home. A fellow Facebook friend (better known as an FFF) and I agreed on a trade. I'm receiving a wonderful leather cuff which will be a surprise and my daughter in South Dakota is receiving a necklace and leather bracelet. I think I made out very well on this trade!
My FFF has two shops on Etsy - Tocadora Leather and Blest Beads. Please check them out. Here's the bracelet and necklace that my daughter picked out. Aren't they beautiful! My daughter and her husband love EAGLES so this was the perfect bracelet for her.
Thank you FFF. Sometimes Life if So Good!
