Currently, I’m working on designing some pendant settings, to use with small cabochons. I’m making my own molds with Premo clay, by impressing found objects, then cutting them out with metal shape cutters. I mixed a few Premo Metallic colors together to create a Golden/Bronze look for the setting. After I baked it I applied some Burnt Umber to add an antique look. Then a few touches of Treasure Gold rub, to highlight the raised design.
Now, I’m trying to decide what color cabochons to make as the insert. Here is a Turquiose, Metallic Tan, & White abstract cab.
Whatever cabochon inserts I decide to use, I will definitely coat them with resin before I affix them to the setting.
