My newest obsession are cabochons. These bright and colorful rosebuds are similar to buttons but without a shank (the loop on the back) and the instant I saw them I had to have some. They make adorable earrings, which is exactly what I’m making.

Attach a little E-6000 to a brass post and the back of the cabochon and you get this – a beautiful rainbow of happy colors.

I love nerds (well, one in particular), sewing, crafting, blog-stalking, and being happy.


  1. now, what exactly is the definition of a cabochon? I’ve never heard of them before. Do they come in tons of different shapes? All just with flat backs? I absolutely LOVE the earrings you made with them. gorgeous and super fun!


  2. I’m not sure of the exact definition but from what I’ve seen, they come in a variety of styles and they all have flat backs.
