New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, announces the arrival of clear glass cabochons and artisan-style dichroic glass cabochon sets for making gorgeous glass jewelry in minutes.
The clear glass cabochons magnify designs and amplify patterns when placed on top of paper or fabric. With text emerging as a popular design element alongside graphic images, the glass cabochons serve as a domed design medium for a collage of both the printed word and related artwork.
Exceptional depth and shimmering iridescence make the dichroic cabochon sets come to life with exuberant color. Sold in sets of one focal and two smaller rounds, the dichroic glass components are handcrafted in the USA by skilled artisans and make versatile jewelry design elements.
Both types of glass cabochons can be used with flat-pad findings including cuff links, tie tacks, pin backs, glue-on bails, earstuds and clip-on earrings. For the clear glass cabochons, adhere paper or fabric to the flat side of the cabochon using Mod Podge® or clear-drying adhesives. Let dry and adhere to flat-pad jewelry-making components using a clear-drying adhesive. Dichroic cabochons can be used with most multipurpose glues including two-part epoxy, E-6000® and G-S Hypo cement.
