  • Cabochons....

    Through this forum, I've just discovered cabochons and completely fallen in love with them! I love glass anyway, but these are something else. Does anyone know if they are drilled or are they sold complete? I would much prefer them complete.

      Cabochon merely refers to the shape of a piece. it can be round square or any shape you wish . it can also be in any medium you wish Traditionally it refers to gemstones but lately you can get glass and plastic cabochons.


      It refers to a flat backed usualy smooth fronted stone.

        I should have said Dichroic glass cabochons. There are a lot that I don't like but then there are those that just inspire me to work around them. Seen a few on greedbay, but haven't bought any - yet!

          Dichroic glass make great cabochons - I used to sell them in batches.

          They are very popular and people use them for all sorts of things - pendants, bracelets, earrings, rings (depending on the size).

          I used to sell mine as they came straight out of the kiln ie., no dilled holes or any treatment (scratched surface ready for gluing). People can them do as they will with them.

          You should experiment with them - a small outlay initially just to see if you can get on with using them.
          Take care

            Thanks Kathryn, but I just don't have time for anything else at the mo. I shall be keeping a close eye on what you are making and selling though!
