Cabochons are flat-backed jewelry making components that can be made from almost any type of material imaginable. Resin, polymer clay, gemstones, Lucite, ceramic and even crystal can be used to create cabochons for your jewelry-making projects. Cabochons can be used in beaded bracelets, necklaces and earrings as well as in belts, on handbags and other beaded accessories. Cabochons can be wire-wrapped, used for bead embroidery or captured in a beaded bezel using off-loom beadweaving stitches. Whether you prefer to use cabochons as the focal point of your beading project or as accents for a larger work of beaded art, you’ll find that cabochons will add a beautiful touch to your favorite beading techniques and jewelry-making projects.
