My First Cab!

My first cabochon! I'm so excited!  I finally got to try my cab mandrel today - this is what I made!  It's clear glass, silver foil, and a gorgeous Turquoise Ocean frit from Gaffer Glass!  It will go in my SueBeads etsy shop shortly - as soon as I order more cab mandrels!  This one measures approx. 25mm (1 inch).

I love glass cabs and see more people making them. I finally bought my first one and am in the process of bezeling it now for a ring!
Can't wait to see more!

Oh, neat! It's so amazing what can be done with glass :)

Adore! I just started doing glass again on my Hothead torch because I'm renting and don't feel comfortable setting up my regular dual-fuel system. Anyway - that is GORGEOUS! Just a wee bit envious of all the beady goodies you've been making. Lots of gorgeous eye-candy! Loving your style! Looking forward to more cabs!

That is gorgeous! I could definitely see that set in silver and made into a ring or pendant.
