A child is only baptized once in their lives. Make sure you honor the occasion with the most elegant baptismal gown you can. This gown was a gift for Maggie and Sam's daughter.

Want to create a dazzling display of seed beads around your favorite cabochon for a remarkable hand-made bezel? This simple two-bead backstitch is perfect for beginners. We'll show you how to create a border around a large pendant, and then how to embellish it with floral accents. Just choose your favorite cabochon or pendant to work with and thread in a complementing color. We are using red in order for you to better see it. The first thing you will need to do is glue your component to one piece of bead backing using Gem-Tac permanent adhesive. Allow the adhesive to dry completely.
Cut a long piece of thread for your project. A good rule of thumb when making seed bead designs is to use no longer than an arm's length. Thread one beading needle and tie a knot at the end to secure. Condition the thread with beeswax or Thread Heaven.
