Handmade 15mm cabochon pendant backs.
Written instructions for use included.
See below for more detail
I have been making and using these pendant backs for my cabochons for some time and by popular request have made some for sale . You can use them with any cabochons sized 15mm and larger.
When you remove your cabochon from the cab mandrel you must clean the bead release from the back with 180 Grade Silicon Carbide Grit.
This will also smooth the surface if you have a little rim where the cab was hugging the cabochon mandrel.
When the surface is completely flat you can glue this to the back.
The advantage of this over a simple pendant tube top loop on its own is that you have a larger surface area to glue making the connection much stronger and very professional looking !
I have left them shiny with a slightly brushed finish.
These are 15mm in diameter made with 0.5mm sterling silver sheet perfect for using with our 14.5mm cab mandrels, ( you will need to make the cabochon slightly bigger than the mandrel – but this tends to happen without much thought)
The loop on the back will fit anything up to 3mm.
I have a Cab and Popper Tutorial which covers the practical aspects of cabochon making which may help you .
