A cabochon from the Middle French caboche (head), is a gemstone which has been shaped and polished as opposed to faceted. The resulting form is usually a convex top with a flat bottom.
Joellen Fritchen will be sharing her tips and tricks in this fun and creative class A cabochon, or ‘cab’, has no hole so how does one use it??? In this class you’ll learn how to bezel, or frame, your cab with beads – seed beads, bugles, squares, and more so it can be used as a pendant or incorporated into a bracelet. Buttons work well also. Once you learn the basic techniques the possibilities are endless for creating knock out jewelry using cabochons! Watch for our Beaded Copper Cuff class for incorporating your cab into a great bracelet cuff!
