It’s the end of the month, which means it’s reveal day for our Art Elements Component of the month challenge. This month the Team & guests were given one of these beautiful Leather cabochons by Lindsay Starr to work with.
I received this gorgeous dark green one!
I decided I wanted to set it somehow and use a druzy cab that I’ve been hoarding. At first I was going to claw set the leather cab, but I couldn’t decide how to use the druzy, so after playing around a bit, I came up with this
I cut copper to fit the back of the cab and soldered a strip to hold the leather in place with a bezel for the druzy. The bottom of the cab is held with a tab.
Hematite beads and a coated quartz point added a bit of colour with the bronze wire, and copper chain finished of the necklace.
Big thanks to Lindsay for a brilliant component. I’ve had great fun working with mine!
