A few things I've made: Cabochons.



Here are a few of the things I have been working on over the last few weeks.

My first beaded cabochon!



My third cabochon.


Beaded coin from South Africa.


The back side.

  
Beaded box. Semi-craft fail, but I may be able to improve it.


"Craft Fail" for multiple reasons. This one will be picked apart and re-done.
  

What do you think? Should I start selling my creations?



I had a great weekend! I hope you did too!


I'll be linking up to several blog linkys and hops. Check them out here, and here.
My hubby's blog is here.

I think you should! I love my necklace, and you do an awesome job on beading, is that hard to do? Believe it or not something I have never attempted. How long have you been doing it?

I love your work. I bead cabs using the same technique..peyote stitch, some with picot around the edges, some with fringe. You'll get addicted to this quickly!
