Golem Design Studio cabochons are beautiful stoneware focal pieces for your jewelry designs. A fun way to showcase them is to bead embroider around them. Cynthia found the perfect TOHO seed beads to match the cabochon at the center of her necklace. She used a few different bead embroidery techniques for an intricate look.
