If you plan to use an open-backed mounting, apply a thin line of adhesive to the rim of the mounting and press the paper-backed cabochon into the adhesive. Coat exposed paper (back of the open mounting) with Mod Podge and then fill the reservoir with 2-part epoxy to make the bond stronger. Some cabochons aren't calibrated so check for fit inside the pendant mounting before you apply the cabochon.
