October 30, 4 Comments. Just when I thought I couldn't possibly make any more room in my bead stash for more cabochons , Tina Holden, my Bead Soup Blog Party swap partner from earlier this year, decided to do a major destash in one of her online shops. That meant lots and lots of her gorgeous polymer clay and resin cabochons were up for grabs, and since cabochons are probably my biggest beady weakness, I found myself the lucky owner of six bags of handmade polymer clay cabochons, pendants, beads, and buttons! These polymer clay cabochons are much different to work with than the gemstone, vintage glass, or handmade ceramic cabochons that I usually use. For one thing, polymer clay cabochons are much lighter than glass, gemstone, and ceramic, so some bead artists like to use them in very intricate beaded jewelry designs. Many of these handmade polymer clay cabochons have textured backs, which makes me want to capture them in open-backed beaded bezels to show off the pretty patterns.
Ha, all of these were my "beginner" projects when I was new to bezeling cabs! And look at you now! An expert at beading cabs! These are excellent ways at showcasing cabs for sure. Wow, I remember that tutorial when it was published in Lapidary Journal! That was a trip down Memory Lane. I really liked Cyndi's free tutorial.
