Cabochon Jewelry

 


I was introduced to cabochon jewelry when I was a child.  My mother had this piece in her jewelry box.  At one time it was an earring, the old fashioned, "screw type" from the 1950's and 60's. By the time I came along, there was no matching piece to it and the screw back had come unattached.  I was so intrigued by this magical piece of jewelry.  I couldn't figure out how they put that beautiful scene in that tiny little piece of jewelry, it's 3/4 of an inch.

Decades later, when I began to learn how to do acrylic pour art, what I came to realize is that during the process, there are often puddles of left-over paint and many might consider just tossing it, but some clever soul, thought, "hum, let's just see if we can use that paint for other things."  I'm so glad they did, as this is the paint that artists like me use to make jewelry art.  Not only is it an excellent way for an artist to cut down on waste it makes stunning of one-of-a-kind jewelry.
