Cabochons Now Available in my Etsy Shop

I have discovered I love making polymer clay cabochon. 🙂 I spend a lot of time getting the shape just right. Then I take the time to sand them by hand with 7 grits of sandpaper so they are smooth as glass. Lastly, I buff them to a high gloss finish. I have a large selection in my Etsy Shop, with more on the way. Grab them while you can. They are in demand !

Here are a few you will find available at this time.

A little experimenting with real stones

I have a small drawer full of real stone cabs and focal beads. I purchased these months ago with the intention of using them in combination with my polymer clay work. I finally made a couple test pieces to see if it was something I’d like to pursue. They turned out pretty decent. 🙂 I used large focal beads made of Ocean Jasper. The pendants are approx 2″ tall.

Yetta’s Hollow Donut Cabachons

It’s a technique that Donna Kato learned from Yetta in New Jersey. As Donna said “Her (Yetta’s) solution is elegant, efficient, simple and pretty much foolproof.” I must say, I may not have a donut cutter (yet), but I see the possibilities with any cutter. And I am tickled to say that Donna used the silk screen stencils I made and sent to her last year on the donuts pictured below. 🙂
