Fabulous!  The boro implosion is just absolutely stunning, sigh ...

Mine were very simple but they're thanks to you originally telling me how  ;D

Julie, I hadn't seen the metallic cab, it is stunning!

The others are too, and Sabine's and Becky's.

I've just taken pics of a couple:

Really loving all the cabs shared here. 

I've done some on a cab mandrel and some on the end of a coated mandrel, usually resorting to the end of a coated mandrel when I've already used my cab mandrel or forgotten to prep it!

Here are a couple of mine  :) (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u80/crystalNess_photos/nessdecjan1011061.jpg) (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u80/crystalNess_photos/nessdecjan1011062-1.jpg)

Im not quite sure though if the flowers stand off the surface just a bit too far for them to be used in jewellery without them looking like knuckle dusters lol  :o

I've been having some cabochon fun too (especially when the bead release gives way and they dance across the bench ::)) Managed to get colour out of psyche!! :)
