I started out looking for a smashing piece of Turquoise for the cabachon, but when I noticed I had the blue crazy lace agate stones on hand I decided to proceed with the plan to make a fun bead embroidered pendant, and weave a Kumihimo cord to hang it on. I added some beadwork for the fun of it at the ends.
I originally planned a black cord until I ran across the beautiful exact matching capri blue satin floss and decided to use it instead. I like the results..
Here is a closer look at the pendant, which consists of two crazy lace agate beads, embroidered and then backed with ultrasuede.
The ends of the cords are covered and secured with beaded end tubes and I finished the closure with vintage brass chain and clasp. Sterling or gold filled/vermiel may be substituted for the vintage brass upon request for cost of materials.
I am enjoing making the kumihimo cords so I will be making more of them in the coming weeks/months. Some will be beaded and some will be other assorted fibers.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
