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.

Cabochon: Banded/Included Agate, Montana

Cabochon: Inlaid Opal, Australia
This is a small rectangular black onyx cab that is inlaid with precious opal in the design of the astrological symbol of the archer, Sagittarius. It is polished on the back, but very thin so it will need to be backed with leather or sawdust. A great gift for the upcoming December babies!

Cabochon: Rose Quartz, Brazil
This large, elongated oval cab has beautiful shimmery inclusions floating in a soft pink clear quartz. This piece is polished on the back so it could be used for wire wrapping. In metaphysical realms, Rose Quartz is the stone of love.
