LunaSoft Cabochons at BeadFX! We have the totally delicious, yummy, JUICY new LunaSoft Cabochons. These are German-made Lucite cabochons - and they almost seem to glow! They are a soft, matte finish, and the metallic back reflects the light, so that it bounces around inside like crazy and comes out all yummy - to use the technical language. They come in squares, ovals and rounds, and if you think that a square moon makes no sense, then you haven't been playing Minecraft. Which you should maybe check out - as it is a hot new wave in computer games. You can build things - and you get to mine for diamonds!
If you need some help with HOW to bead a bezel around a cabochon - which simply means that you use seedbeads to create a ring around the stone to hold it in place - anyway - if you need help with that - then check out Right-Angle Weave Stitch Workshop - which promises to teach you this and much, much more.
Speaking of Bezels - check THIS out! These are bead bezels - or rivoli bezels, or for round cabochons - or - what have you. Pop a 14 mm bead into these, push the soft metal edge down onto the bead, and bingo - instant charm or pendant!
These have a rotating bail on them too, so they are flexible in how you use them. They are quite exciting!
We also have these - with an interior ledge or shelf - so you can glue a 16 mm cabochon into them. Say - something that you made in Resin? I leave it to your fertile imaginations to find ways to use them!
And speaking of fertile imaginations - it doesn't actually require one to imagine that these bead caps (or cones) are actually Woodland Fairy Hats - immortalized in Brass, Antique Brass, Bright Copper, Antiqued Copper, Antiqued Silver, or Gunmetal. Although I'm struggling with reconciling "Gunmetal" and "Woodland Fairy" as two concepts that go together. Gunmetal is more appropriate for the Gnome hats, I think.
