HI, I am trying to make a beaded bezel around a seashell (cockel shell) to hang as a pendant using the technique from:
by Jennifer VanBenschoten
The shell has a convex upper surface and a 2mm flat bottom edge but virtually no vertical edge that would stabilize the beads. The brick stitch start using Delica seed beads size 11 fits the underside edge fine but doesnot stay in place where I want it when I start adding the peyote stitch beads. Short of gluing the flat brick stitch rounds to the underside edge before adding peyote rounds, what can I do or any other helpful suggestions on how to hand a seashell pendant.
