This month, the Art Elements component of the month was a bit different than usual for me...I was the maker of the component! Since I am typically not a component maker, I normally let everyone else sign up for the monthly slots, but for some reason several months ago, I signed up for a challenge. After much fretting about what to make, I had an idea...that actually worked out...and I ran with it. Introducing - leather cabochons!
Etsy) in purple, black and gold, and a lampwork cab that I've had stashed away for several years (artist unknown). Between the darkness and subtlety of each of these cabs, I felt like they both belonged in the same realm as the leather cab, even though the 3 materials couldn't be more different.
Making components has been an adventure for sure! If you are interested, I do have a few more cabs for sale over at the Art Elements Extras Facebook group. I'm not sure if I will ever make any more!
I do hope you will hop along and see what everyone else has cooked up
with their leather cabs! We have several guests this time, and I am
super excited to see what everyone has made.
