This cabochon is 30mm x 40mm and has beautiful earthtone colors. I used Japanese Delicas and size 15’s to peyote stitch a beaded bezel with minimum embellishments and a peyote stitched bail. The beaded rope is done in a spiral rope stitch using the same beads. I have chosen the colors of the beads to match some of the colors in the stone.

About the Artist: Jacqueline Trerise
I started beaded as a child but as I grew older my curiosity led me to try many different art forms. Beading just got left behind. But, about six years ago as I was browsing in a magazine store wondering what I could get my hands into next, I came across a beading magazine. I was hooked. I have tried my hand at all kinds of off loom beading techniques, which I love. I also enjoy working with wire. I have been dabbling in polymer clay and PMC to create my own pendants and beads.
I must confess...I am addicted!!!
