My sister Pam recently asked for a scarf clip for her works uniform. Well, what can I say. I just love a challenge. I knew I had some scarf blanks hanging around somewhere. After a bit of a rummage, yeay found them. The problem with these type of blanks is the glass cabochon has to fit in a setting and not just on a pad. A bit of guessing and judgement as to what size and shape I should cut the glass I gave it my best shot and here is the outcome.Guess what? Pam loves it :o).
Whilst I was cutting Pam's cabochon my mind was wondering onto doing another one. This time I did not have any restraints on colour or design. So, I though a hand ground eye cabochon would look great in this setting. After a bit more judging what size to cut the glass. I complete it and put it in the kiln with Pam's. A couple of hours later, the kiln door was opened and with a sigh of relief the cabochons fitted the setting.
As always the picture never show the true gorgeous colour of glass but you get the idea of it.
