One of the things that’s always drawn me out into nature is the free flower show each year from the first thaw to the last frost. It’s happening out there right now with the floor of the woods covered with spring ephemerals all blooming in their turn.
I already see the summer wildflowers putting up their stalks and in a few weeks the sunny areas will start to fill up with colors.
Sunflowers and sweet peas, daisies and St. John’s Wort, and butterflies, in all the colors of spring and summer! The cabochon pendants I made for my Seasons of the Panhandle Trail exhibit are a popular lot of designs. When I look at them I remember all those mornings and afternoons in cool spring woods or hot summer fields.
In addition to the wildflower inspirations I’ve added some of the butterflies I’ve photographed along the trail. And here and there I’ve tossed in a few garden flowers like roses and irises.
I make a high-quality print of my image, whether photo or painting, trim it to fit the cabochon and frame and adhere it all together, then choose a cord or chain that coordinates with it. I like to vary the shapes from plain circles to squares and rectangles in a variety of metal finishes as well as plates with decorative frames. It’s hard to stop once I get going with these.
Special: Two Cabochons for $25.00
Because it’s hard to choose just one, this special discount applies all the time on ALL my cabochons, nature and cats: buy two cabochons for $25.00, use the discount code 2CABACHONS25. They are $15 each and you get a $5.00 discount when you buy two. All tax, shipping and handling are included in that price. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!
Above is a photo of the Panhandle Trail Collection of cabochons. You can find them and purchase them from my Handmade Gifts page of Jewelry.
If you don’t find the one you would like on the jewelry page, it may be sold, but each time I make a new batch I usually repeat ones that were popular. I’m not always able to find the same cabochon frames. Please message me if you have a question.
Fine felines too!
I also have a line of feline cabochons, and they are on special too. Below is portion of the selection that’s on my Jewelry page, just for more examples.
I don’t know that I’ll ever find these particular plates and frames again, so if you want to take advantage of the two for $25.00 deal you can choose from any of the cabochons.
