How to Bezel a Cabochon

I like to mix my crafty metaphors.  Needlepoint, embroidery, beadwork, I love them all.

You know I love my beads and I've been adding more beads and bead techniques to our mystery classes and other projects.

In Run, bunny, Run from zecca we worked a bead embroidery bezel around a cabochon to use it as a flower center.


It adds another texture and some depth to you piece.

You can keep your cabochons simple or add more detail.


I thought you might want to try your hand at this so we made up some small kits.  Complete full color instructions, bead foundation, beading thread, needles, beads and a cabochon.  Just a little something to play with.



Once you learn the technique, the sky is the limit.  You can bezel any size cabochon you want!  Pretty cool.

If you would like to give it a try give us a call at 410.296.0405.  The kits are $22.50.  We can happily pop one into your next shipment.

Until next time.
