Incorporating beadwoven cabochons into jewelry is my most favorite form of beading and, as my beading friends will tell you, I will make just about anything into a cabochon. I had purchased a beautiful square-ish Czech glass button from the 1 Stop Bead Shop in Dublin, OH (http://www.1stopbeadshop.com/) and knew I wanted to make something special with it. The detail in the button reminded me of art deco styling and I decided to mimic it in a bead embroidered band.
With encouragement from my friend, Helen O'Donnell (http://www.embroideredsoul.com/), I submitted a photograph of the completed bracelet to Bead & Button magazine last fall and they indicated they wanted to include it as a project in the August 2009 issue! So, get ready to get your bling on and let me know how you like the project.
