Texas’ Nora Pero likes to bead around her polymer creations, using them as focal pieces. She hit the motherlode of imitation stone beads when she tried Lynda Moseley’s new tutorial. Nora says she’s obsessed. See more of her beaded results on Etsy.
Nora can make her cabochons any shape and color she wants, imitating natural stone or creating her own reality. Just look at the supply she made for herself as soon as she read the instructions.
Here are Lynda’s samples. She often turns her versions into turquoise-like mosaics.
If you’re a rock hound like me this tutorial could save you time. Let’s enjoy some experimenting this weekend.
