Bead Emroidered Neckpieces

Embroidered on Stiff Stuff, using C-lon backed with the softest leather ever.

Pearls, crystals, seed beeds, dichoic glass, amethyst chips and briolettes, and a quartz cabachon. Still haven't figured out what to do for a 'chain' for this piece-- maybe some kind of a beaded spiral rope?

At the last gem show I went to, I bought a bunch of beautiful agate slices. This one is dyed and measures almost 5 inches. Also pearls, dichroic glass and seed beads. I think it need some brach fringe -- lots of it!

Hi Gisela,
I was browsing around and landed here! What a treat! You have done some awesome work. Loved the discharge work. I've always used just plain old bleach. Is there a difference using the gel?
Love the beadwork.... You are a jack of all trades.... Really enjoyed seeing your work
