Bead Embroidered Barrette
by Nancy Rocknich.
I love beaded barrettes. I made this one from a beautiful Green Onyx cabochon and two agate cabs.
A simple design using seed beads, pearls.
Glue down the cabs with E-6000 onto Nicole’s beadbacking.
Using back stitch, peyote stitch beads around cabs, fill in gaps with some pearls, attach barrette, cover with ultra suede, bead around the edges with brick stitch and a picot and voila barrette is complete.
Bead embroiderdry is such a versatile beading technique, simple or complex lots of fun.
