Southwest Shield

by: Pam Kearns


I loved the texture and colour of the recent resin fashion cabochons that came in. While my strength is not in bead embroidery, I knew that combining the cab with the dragon toes beads would be a great combination. The shape of the dragon toes lent themselves to 'holding' the cab in place and for edge of the shield itself. The base is Lacy's Stiff Stuff; the back is covered with ultra suede. The pinback is stitched on to the ultra suede. I already had most of the beads on hand, left over from other projects!

The cab is glued in place and the beads are stitched using 6lb Fireline. I stitched the backing using C-lon thread, D weight.

To learn about bead embroidery and some of the techniques that you can use, check out Anne Marie Desaulniers' intuitive bead embroidery class coming up in November 2014.
