Sally Russick ~ Cabochon Challenge

When the challenge this month was for Cabochons,
 I knew it was time to finally make these
 into necklaces. 
They all took on a different personality even though 
They all had the same filigree bezel setting.

 Finding the right color of beads to compliment the shell
 proved to be
a little bit of a challenge for this choker.
Dyed Paua Shell Cabochon

Black Onyx Cabochon
I would wear this with layered with other 
coordinating necklaces.
 So I went with this very simple design.

Multi Agate Cabochon
I have to say I like the mix of the more 
modern Czech beads with the ornate style
 of the Bezel.

Here is the list of Participants:

#93741 Recon. Turquoise white rondel

#94008 Dyed white Howlite 8mm
 Added some luster half coat o-beads for the loop.
