Gather up your cabochons, Miyuki seed beeds, soutache, leather and earring posts. It is recommended to brush the back of your cabochon with permalac to protect the paper backing. Glue the cabochon to some beading foundation.
Sew the soutache around the outside of the cabochon. Tereza guides you step-by-step and gives you tips and tricks to using this method in the Juicy Tropics Earrings tutorial. Sew a piece of leather on the back of the project to keep everything in place.
