Glass Cabochons, or cabochons in general are flat-bottomed pieces without holes, sometimes referred to as “cabs”. Glass cabochons can be used within a long list of different artistic and crafting mediums and techniques to create a beautiful finished piece.

One of the more popular uses for cabochons is gluing bails on them so that the cabochon can be worn as a necklace pendant.

If you’re a seed beader you can also “cage” the cabochon in a beautiful design, bezel set, wire wrap, or use them in a PMC creation. Even further, glass cabochons can be used in mosaics and stained glass panels. The list of possible uses of cabochons is quite varied. There are probably some uses I haven’t even thought of.
