Cabochons & Beads
Our cabochons come from a variety of sources – some are hand cut by Patti, some are cut by our cabber friends, such as Odie House; some are bought out of old collections or through other venues. No matter their source, we strive to bring you the best quality material available at a variety of price levels. Our cabochons are perfect for cabochon collectors or for jewelers in the US and abroad who are looking to create their highest quality and most original statement pieces.
To complement your cabochons, we offer a variety of stone and other media beads for stringing your own necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
We do all of our own photography, and the camera definitely shows everything – both good and bad in our cabs so you know exactly what you are getting when you purchase our cabochons. Some cabochons are polished on the back so they are suitable for open back bezels or for our wire-wrapping enthusiasts.
