Got another batch of one-of-a-kind, free-form cabochons in the store. These won’t be going up on the website – you’re just going to have to come into the store to get them. Such a hardship, I know. Spending time in a light, airy store surrounded by all the beads and tools and findings. Getting all sorts of ideas for all kinds of other things you can make. Maybe even striking up a conversation with someone who actually appreciates a good bead the way you do. Tragic. Make a day of it. 😉
Here’s some selected cabs as eye candy.
As for what to do with them – you can go as simple as gluing a bail on the back, like last week’s post, to elaborate beaded bezels, or even traditional silversmithing techniques. Wire wrapping too! Just cause it doesn’t have a hole – doesn’t mean you can’t use it.
(Prices range from around 9.95 to 24.95 – depending on size and rarity of the stone.)
