Hey beautiful! In today’s video I will show you how to bezel a 26mm round stone with seed beads and sparkly Preciosa crystal bicone beads. The materials and inspiration for this project came straight from the contents of the Fuchsia level BeadingSchool Academy subscription box for September-October 2021; theme: Magic Garden.

About the Cottage Garden Design:
We will begin this piece by creating a seed bead bezel with peyote stitch. Miyuki Delicas will form the middle, followed by size 11/0 round, and then the 15/0 rounds will be used last to tighten the bezel around the stone
Additional 15/0 round seed beads will be added around the side of the bezel, which create the perfect spaces to add the sparkly 4mm Preciosa bicone beads. Don’t you just love the AB 2x coating on these beads?
You may choose to add a bail, or not, depending on what you plan to do with this piece. The bold size, in addition to the dangling leaves and fabric rosettes, make this a gorgeous option for a brooch, I think. While I haven’t added the pin finding to the back yet, I think that is what I will ultimately decide to do. I am picturing this design pinning a lovely scarf in place.
What is BeadingSchool Academy?
Introducing: BeadingSchool Academy; a bi-monthly beading subscription that is more than meets the eye. Unlike any other bead box, BeadingSchool Academy combines high-quality materials, educational opportunities, live interaction with fellow Academy “students,” and a celebration of everyone’s unique creativity. I think that’s pretty special!
For a limited time, new subscribers are eligible for bonuses! Check out all the subscription details at BeadingSchool.com.
The very first box!
September 2021 Theme: Magic Garden
Inside Fuschia, you will find approx. 170 € ($199+) worth of beading materials. Beyond the materials, two high-quality beading patterns are also included, which can be enjoyed right away!
With the Fuchsia level subscription, you have access to even more possibilities!
After completing the two provided tutorials, perhaps you’ll want to dive into the e-learning center, with articles, tutorials, quizzes, and inspiration boards.
Later in the month, you may join other beading buddies LIVE via Zoom! A private and exclusive platform to discuss ideas while you bead, ask questions, laugh, and share in the fun with others who are working with the same materials.
Throughout the two-month period of bead box enjoyment, you may also browse the “virtual exhibition” via Pinterest. See what everyone has created from the same contents you have received, and submit your own work to share!
Also, at the end of a yearly subscription period, you have the option to partake in an online graduation ceremony where you can exhibit your finished jewels!
Fuschia level subscriptions also qualify for priority handling, and free shipping.
