How to Hand Cut a Fused Glass Puddle Cabochon

Cutting a Puddle Cabochon

In this cabochon cutting tutorial, I’ll be cutting a puddle cabochon into an oval shape.

Being a puddle cabochon its shape is irregular and I need a cabochon that is a uniform oval shape and size. Mainly because I want to set it into a symmetrical oval low-sided bezel setting. If I was happy to make a custom setting with high sides, I wouldn’t need to do this, but that’s not the aim here.

I’m using lapidary techniques to cut and shape this cushion-cut cabochon, but using a kiln to do the final polish.

If you have any questions, please ask them as comments on the video and I’ll do my best to answer you.
