After five print runs of this book, I decided to retire it in bound form and instead make it available to you through the internet (pdf format). I love knowing that many more creative souls will have access to it! You can read it on line by scrolling through the pages. Also, you are welcome to print it. The margins are wide enough so that you can punch holes and keep it in a 3-ring binder. Please respect my still-active copyright and print this file only for your own, personal use

The first time I tried to use cabochons in my bead embroidery, I just glued them to the bead embroidery backing and started stitching around them. Those cabochons started to peel right off the bead embroidery backing after just a couple of days and the whole piece was pretty much ruined. After that, I learned how to stitch a peyote bezel around my cabochons to hold them securely in place, and I’ve been thrilled with the results ever since.

A few years ago I dabbled in bead embroidery…for about 5 seconds. I think I started two projects but never completed either of them. A few weeks prior to Bead Fest, the bead embroidery bug bit me again. This time I see in a new light, as a way to embellish my own ceramic work.

“How do I layer my flatwork pieces?” Well I have been doing this technique for over 20 years. I have had this technique published in several magazines and in my own book, “FlatWork” I have kits that show the technique and I teach this in my beading classes. The process I use is so easy. You can make your focal bead as tall as you like.
