Cabochons

I’ve been trying to do double duty this weekend, making beads for an order and also trying to get some cabs made. Not having much success at either. I did get a chance to try my new cab mandrel which is a mandrel with a disk on the top. I think I like it. While the design on my cab didn’t turn out that well, I like the fact that the cab doesn’t have to have the bottom ground down. It’s perfectly flat, ready to be used.

I also made some that I have to grind the bottoms down. These are really small.

And here’s some striped cabs.

The right one looks like it has measles. Might try to make another without the dots on the heart…..
