Beaded Bezel Frenzy!!!!!

You might or might not remember my previous posts on fusing glass cabochons using ugly beads and scraps.   So what do you do with all those tasty glass baubles?  One thing you can do it surround them with beaded bezels.  And since every cabochon is different, every bezel has to be different right?

I used   right angle weave stitch along with peyote,  some netting and some herringbone.

I used Delicas and Japanese and  Czech seed beads seed beads in sizes  0/15 to 0/6.

I had a lot of fun with the beaded drops.

I kept adding beads until I liked what I saw.    I didn’t use any patterns.

I didn’t bead on a surface; all of the beaded bezels are open

This one is fit for a queen!

While I didn’t bead a bezel for every cabochon I had fused,  I have an awful lot of these babies.  They are now cozying up to one another on my beading table until I decide what do do with them.  Which is got I got into this  mess in the first place!

  1. This is great. I have a lot of cab type beads that I’d like to use with my wire crocheted beaded necklaces. But I can’t get my head around the bead weaving. no matter how many times I watch a you tube video.

    • You might be attempting too much. You might try working flat peyote to get the hang of the seed beading process. It does take practice. If you enjoy it, you can progress to something harder.
