Today was Tuesday….yes another full-on studio day and was really happy with some of the finished pieces.  I knew I was going to be working on some cabs so created some hand shaped cabachons Monday night ready to work with.  I had an idea of incorporating some image transfer pieces in the mix so picked out a few lovely ladies I wanted to use as well.  The images were purchased about 6 years ago from Carol Murphy in the US.  Her business name was Altered By Design but unfortunately Carol doesn’t produce these images any more.  I’ve also included some cabachons that incorporate a range of different veneers including veneers using silkscreens from


The veneers looked so beautiful all together on the table that I decided to incorporate them into some concentric circle pendant pieces.  You can find my tutorial for this at CraftArtEdu but I demo many different veneers (not these ones).

Love the effect of the veneers on your cabs. They look very glossy, so I am assuming they are coated with epoxy resin to seal? Great work.
