I have wanted to make some glass cabochon's ever since I found out they could be set into silver clay. I've already made some pendants but I wanted something more round rather than squarish.. and the result of my first try......I'm so pleased with how they turned out. You can't really tell on the photo but they change colour and can be a blue or yellow depending on how you look at them.I can see myself getting fairly addicted to making these little shiny ones :D
But what to do with them? I got the pencils and paper out and had a draw and a play with some ideas.. I was going for a silver flower with the glass as the centre and I ended up with...
Not very flowery is it? It does have a leaf shape that I found in the garden and rolled onto the clay. I oxidised the piece to try and get the detail to stand out a bit more. It's a pendant (there is an embedded bail in the back)and I'm not sure if I should put it on a chain or some beading wire. I will be making a few more of these I think but I'll try to make the detail stand out a bit more and less bendy! :)
Have a great week!
