AJE Component of the Month – Baby Cabochons

It was my turn for the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month and I made baby cabochons.  Unfortunately, even though I was the host, I wasn’t able to complete my project.  But I thought I’d show you what I started, anyways.

This was my original design – making a paisley design with the cabs as the focus.  I drew my design out first, and the outside edge would be picot off of size 8 beads with a size 15 stop bead.

Here’s how far I got – I still have pretty far to go.  I feel pretty bad that even though it was my own CoM I didn’t finish, but this is a crazy month so I guess I’ll give myself a break.

I hope you visit everyone else to see what they made!
