Handmade 20mm 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 21mm and larger.
When you remove your cabochon (any size from 21 mm upwards ) 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 20mm in diameter made with 0.5mm sterling silver sheet perfect for using with our 21mm cab mandrels, ( you will need to make the cabochon slightly bigger than the mandrel). You can even fit them in the recess left by the cab mandrel for a flush finish on the back if you prefer as they are a perfect fit !
Th loop on the back will fit anything up to 4mm.
I have a Cab and Popper Tutorial which covers the practical aspects of cabochon making which may help you .
