New Cabs and Pins

A couple of weeks ago I taught two lovely ladies how to make "faux Dichroic Glass" cabs using clay, embossing powders, textiva film and Ultra thick Embossing Enamel.  We started with Black, white, turquoise and purple clay and went from there.  Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of all of them together, but you can see the 7 I made on the left in the pic above.   Wish you could see these in person because they have soo many colors in them - they change with the angle you view them.  I pulled out the little bag I store these in as I do them and was surprised at how many I had done!  I do them while I'm cooking dinner usually when something is baking.  All of them have seed beads, some have semi precious gems like Amythist, Peridot, Goldstone and pearls.  The copper colored one has real copper sizd 13 charlottes (LOVE these!  But expensive).  Almost all of them have Svarowski crystals and Pressed Chec glass beads.  Takes me about 1 1/2 hours to bead one once I decide on the beads which takes about another hour! LOL  More if I have to run to the bead store.  These will be going on Etsy as soon as I can do write ups on them.
