The fused glass cabochon is by Lauren Urban on etsy. It reminds me of coconut with orange peels inside. I just love it. I wanted to create a totally unique piece using that cabochon and as you can see, I had a BLAST !
This necklace is 20" long measuring along the inside edge. It is also a fairly heavy piece, as the cabochon is over 3" across. The turquoise blue leather is recycled from a jacket. The neck chain is knitted cotton. This is an attention-grabbing piece for sure.....not for the feint of heart.

I have been doing seedbead work since I was a teen. We won't talk about how long ago that was. Back then if you did seedbead work, it was "indian beadwork". I'm not even sure you can say that anymore unless you're a quarter indian or something. My great grandmother on my father's side was a Canadian indian. Does that count? Anyway.... seed beading has changed SO much from the southwestern inspired rosettes and loom pieces of my youth. But I think most of my pieces tend to show that influence.

I also love mixing the seedbeads with crochet. Figured I'd use the last photo to show you a piece.
