Look What Our Students Made!!

On Sunday, I taught a new course at beadFX called Introduction to Bead Embroidery to eleven students. The goal of the class was to learn how to bezel a cabochon onto a bead backing. They got to choose cabochons and seed beads from the large array available at the store. I was amazed how well everyone did. I thought I would show you pictures of everyone's work. This is what students accomplished in three hours. You can too!!

Dawn used a Lunasoft cabochon. 

Here is Deborah's multicolor seed bead mix around a piece of turquoise. 


This is a button that Angela made. 


Lynn used a Lunasoft cabochon as well. It's actually grey, but changes colour depending on the beads used to bezel it. 


Bonnie also used a Lunasoft cabochon. 

Connie used a beautiful jasper stone with metallic pink beads. 


Here is the piece that Sharon is working on. We had fun picking out beads to match the stone. 


Marigrace used Malachite in hers. 

BeadFX's own Rae did a fantastic job by adding in drops to her piece. I think she is going to turn this into a ring. 

Beth used a stone similar to Connie's, but embellished it with seed beads from one of BeadFX's ColourFX custom blends. 


Marion used an oval Blue Crazy Lace Agate bead that was sewn to the backing securely and then embellished. This screams Summertime to me. 


And here is the one I worked on with a huge Swarovski flatback from my personal stash. 

Don't be intimidated by new techniques! All the instructors at beadFX are excellent and break down each step in projects to easily doable steps. 

Check the class calendar and sign up for a new class today! You won't regret it!
