This is a beaded cab pendant/necklace I did for a friend for her birthday.

This is probably my favorite piece to date!

crystals, size 11's and 15's with drops around the outer edge of the cameo.

comments welcome!!

That is beautiful.  What did you use in the back?  It is embroidery stitched?

redflags- its not as big as it looks, only 2 inches or so.

purplexime - its done like a regular cabochon is done. the Cameo is glued to some suede backing with cardboard sandwiched in between more suede backing and beads stitched on the outer rim stitching the backings together. then you stitch around the cameo.
