Fused Glass Cabochons

We have listed all the beautiful small cabochons we used to have on our main store. These are mainly used for stud earrings.

It is early days but we intend to be listing much much more.

The type of things we hope to list are beading supplies that we find and believe are interesting, semiprecious and precious gemstones, glass fusing supplies, found objects and almost anything we would find interesting that can be used in your creative endeavors.

If you want to know when we list something new sign up for our Newsletter here.
