To the River
Bead embroidery secured to a handformed metal core by its ultrasuede backing.
Mostly simple running stitch, with peyote stitch around the cabochons.
Mostly Czech charlottes and true cuts.
Easy peyote stitch -- only had to reduce wherever the stones were most angled.
Still trying to determine whether these vintage stone cabochons are gaspeite or chrysoprase.
I always like to make the "back view" interesting, too.
I made the "muddy rocks" with really ugly, low grade freshwater pearls.
A view of the other end, with more pearls.
