OK, don't laugh... I found some pieces of colored Glass at Franklin and thought I'd try cutting cabochons from them. And this first attempt looks great! Redder than it looks in the photo, goes from almost transparent at upper right to almost milky whitish streaks at lower left. Gloria at Wire Treasures is going to transform this cab into a pendant.
35.5mm x 22.5mm x 5mm. Weight: 28.15 carats.
Every one of my cabochons is custom cut to take the best advantage of the particular slab from which it is fashioned. Colors may vary somewhat from what is pictured due to differences in computer monitors.
