Oh, beautiful! And I love cameos, so your focal piece is breathtaking. Nicely done!
Well done! Very neat. I'm still trying to find my feet with bead embroidery - am a bit scared of it somehow!
Love both your choices of focal stone.
Thank you so much!! it´s is so fun to try new things and to experiment. And if i get this kind of response on my first attempt i really want to try again and again......
Those are beautiful, I have got to learn how to do that.
thank you!!you have to be patient and have an intrest,after that just fire away. I just felll in love with it right away.I newer thought i would like working with these itsy bitsy small pearls, but never say never :-)
They are very pretty. Ive never tried embroidery.. how do you do you like it compares to bead weaving stand alone bezels where you stich through other beads as opposed to stitching through a backing?
Bead embrodery is much different for the first couple of rows as those are the ones you stitch through the backing (Lacy's Stiff Stuff or better yet Nicole's Beadbacking which comes in colors). I find bezeling a cab with embroidery is much easier for me than bead stitching a rim.....but that is me. I have pretty stiff fingers and always have, so holding a separate beaded piece is much harder then holding a glued down cab and piece of backing. (I also cuss a lot for the first few rows of brick or peyote until I have enough to grab a hold of) A whole bracelet that is bead embroidered is great fun and they are usually freeform and look awesome when done.

Thank you so muck for you´r kind words regarding my first embroidery I really appreciate it
actually i prefer embroidery because i can´t seem to get bead weaving correct, it doesn´t like me I think bead weaving like herringbone,spiral stitch,tubular peyote et.c is really difficult, especially in the beginning.I really want it to work, but so far it´s not. but i aint going to stop trying.I think embroidery stitching through backing is really fun and i hope to become really good at it,I like the fact that I can make almost any shape,form,use as many colours as I want as long as it looks goodI do recommend trying if you are curious
