HandmadeCopper Brown Elongated Teardrop Dichroic Fused Glass Cabochon. One of my handmade dichroic fused art glass cabochons in an elongated teardrop shape in rich shades of brown and copper with gold veining. This elongated teardrop cabochon is approximately 52mm x 20mm.

This cabochon is ready for your beading, PMC, metalwork or wire wrapping purposes. It has a channeled edge ready for wire wrapping. This channel virtually disappears once the cab is set into a netted bezel or other setting styles.

All of my cabs are fired & annealed in a digitally controlled, energy efficient kiln using compatible glass.

I do my best to provide accurate pictures and descriptions however different monitors may change the colors shown.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I have been making these dichroic fused art glass cabochons for over five years. I like precise shapes with clean edges.

My cabochons generally take two firings in the kiln. I fuse the dichroic glass into a slab first. Then I ponder the best use of the slab before I settle on the shapes I'm going to cut. After I mark these shapes I cut them out on a ring saw. After that I use my grinder to clean up the edges and put a small bevel on the edge of the cabochon. Then I switch to a channeling bit which puts a narrow channel or groove into the edge of the cabochon for wire wrapping. If the top of the cab isn't even I pull out the flat top grinder an grind the top flat. I lay them out onto the kiln shelf and paint them with a devitrification solution to ensure they come out nice and shiny. Once they are cooled I quality check them. If I'm not happy more grinding, channeling and another firing commence!
