Topics: Making a Seed Bead Bezel for a Cabochon

Where can I find instructions on surrounding cabochons with beads? Is there a book that I could get?

You can find free online instructions on couching, or creating a bezel for a cabochon using seed beads, also called bead embroidery. You may also wish to view the ''Cuff Bracelet with Paua Shell Cabochon and Seed Beads'' how-to video and instructions or the ''Triple-Strand Necklace with Embroidered Brooch/Pendant and Gold Chain'' how-to video and instructions that demonstrate this technique.
