Hey, Happy Crafters! I am really excited to share this week's shop update with yall, and Randy and I picked 5 of our favorite cabs to feature to you! This was difficult to do, because each one is so unique and stands out on its own <3 Each of the cabs discussed below, and many like them, are available for sale in our shop
Meet our first "set" of cabs for sale! They are certainly sisters more than twins, but we felt like they accentuated each other well. Perfect for a pair of earrings, or a mini pendant and ring set! What you would make with these small cabs?
These are cab 1G
This tear drop is our favorite from our most recent experiments with blending frits to get a swirling, almost resin-like gradient. I think the fiery tones pair perfectly with the vibrant flash of the dichro inclusions <3
This is cab 4G
This piece is one of Randy's most favorite pieces we have ever made! I personally love the versatility of a partially transparent cab, as whoever takes it home can paint the back to be whatever color they like or they can leave it clear to pick up on the colors of their clothing or skin when worn. The large, hand cut pieces of dichroic glass fused in this piece give a lively flash with every movement!
This is cab 25G
This is possibly my favorite Galaxy cab I have ever made! The dispersion of the bubbles, complimented by the nebula flashes of dichroic glass against an inky background give this cab so much character and depth.
This is cab 27G
This cabochon is the result of experimenting with a new-to-us color of pale amber transparent frit that I think looks like a warm citrine, with opal-like flashes of dichroic glass glimmering from within!
This is cab 31G
