Hey now - I really like this one. Off mandrel cabochon.

I really like the way this came out. Almost like a poppy. Woohoo!


  1. Beautiful! At first look I thought it is butterfly inside :-)

  2. Very nice - black threading is my fav to do over colors - I like that orange - what color is that - a spot of trans green or is that a reaction ?

  3. The orange is some nameless sample val cox frit - from her experiments. So a blend of oranges. The centre spot is an accident - an artifact of the clear punty being pushed too hard into the cabochon - so that the centre of the cab is transparent, and apparent, so was the frit right there - and further out, it is opaque. But a happy accident.

    I kept trying to fix it while I was making it, and eventually gave up!
