Bead Journal Project - October 2010

The "Fantasy Dressmaker" knows that details make all the difference and a trimwork medallion can be used to enhance an outfit.
Medallions may be used to draw the eye, as is frequently seen on cloaks, accenting the closure. Sometimes, they are used as a device to hide something that's less than lovely, such as the raw ends of braidwork.

This set of medallions features a pair of vintage pressed glass cabochons, surrounded by a beaded bezel.
The bezel includes freshwater pearls and faceted copper beads.
