Uploader comment: Since Pavot requested I post this picture, I guess I will! This is a pendant and necklace I made this winter for a show. It's hand embroidered using a bezel technique on felt, and backed with leather. It's peyote stitched (it's a type of needle stitch not a psychedelic mushroom!! lol) The center stone is a very high quality synthetic turquoise called a Sleeping Beauty. Each bead in the pendant was sewn off-loom, one by frickin' one. there are thousands of beads in this piece.
