Green Tree Agate Pendant

About this design:

I wanted to try something completely out of my comfort zone and work with some of the cabs I've got stashed. The first picture shows what it started as and then, goes on to show the progression of it. I got some really good tips from a nice lady on Facebook!


Green Tree Agate Cab & Beads, Assorted Seed Beads ~ 15/0 & 11/0 and Leather on the back.

    Oh how cool!! Your first pic pulled me in and your other photos blew me away!! These seed-wrapped cabs just hold a real facination for me and I haven’t done this yet. I have seed beads, I bought pellon, and leather-type fabric for backing, I guess I just need to park my fluffy backside down and give it a try?!? (I thinkg I’m afraid of the addiction that comes along with a new technique.)

    Elaine This is out of your comfort zone? It is unusual for me to see beadwork around stones that improve the original stone. My mother-in-law has done some and I,ve seen some on this site, you have done a really cool job on this jewelry. Beautiful cab, lovely seedbead work.
