I had a repeated request this past week for cabs... which in my book are dangerous. No, not for everyone - just me. As what happens to me is I have to make them every which way... and in every color and size - and and and....
I've been playing around with finding other ways to use them, as I don't always have the time to make bezel settings... my sweet neighbor, Kathleen, is a beading genius and can whip out bezel cups or stitch these into seed beads in the drop of a hat - but me? I'd rather be making beads!!
(*if you want one - but don't have the means to mount it, I can put you in touch with her - and you two can make arrangements).
Over time, I've come to putting holes in the cabs to allow for a jumpring... but that seems to lessen the elegance of said cab. This week, after the flurry of cabs - I started looking at some bead sets I have on hand, and decided to take the cab to a more casual style and add that hole for a bale... last I counted, I have eleven sets of beads that there are now focals and closures for!
