How to Bezel a Cabochon or Rivoli with Seed Beads

Learn a simple technique that you can easily adapt to fit any size or shape of Cabochon or Rivoli

  • Do you want to know how to add a seed bead bezel to a rivoli?
  • How about adding a seed bead bezel to a cabochon?
  • Would you like to learn a technique you can use for bezelling around a square or oval cabochon?

If you said 'yes' to any of those questions, you're in the right place.

I'll be using video demonstrations and written instructions to show you a simple bead-weaving technique that will do all these things.

You can follow along at your own pace. So, no pressure to keep up with me or anyone else.

You also get lifetime access, so you can return as often as you need.

Bead along with me, or just watch, then try the beading later.

All of this for, enrol now and enjoy!

Or, for those of you who want a bit more help, I also offer a paid version of this course. So, for a very small fee, you get all this material, PLUS access to personal tuition from me. So, if you get stuck, or have questions, I can help you out, just as I would in a real workshop. You can also download the materials to keep and use any time you're not at your computer. So, if that sounds like a better option, you can find it here:

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
