Some Beauties Created in Germany

Where have I been and what have I been doing? Amazingly, I haven't been anywhere outside my four walls, but I have been busy.

To start with, I've been caught up with making dichroic glass cabochons. I just can't get enough of them. And while I'd like to do beadwork around each and every one of them, I only have 2 arms and there are just not enough hours in the day. So I started selling them in my Etsy shop.

Here are the first two cabochons that were purchased by Sabine Lippert from Germany.

I just love what she did with them. Her beadwork is always unique and I think she really shows off the cabs wonderfully!

You can see more of her work on her blog, Try-To-Be-Better or on her website, Try-To-Be. She also just opened an Etsy shop, Try-To-Be-Unique, where she sells her patterns. I am going to be one of her customers for sure!

Stay tuned for more dichroic cab updates and some information on the process of making them.


  1. Thank you so much Linda! It was a great experience to get your Cabochons. Really I never saw such a brilliant fire in a "piece of glass"....
    Greetings Sabine

  2. Your cabs are fabulous. Sabine made beautiful necklaces with them.

  3. Very inspiring and gorgeous! I've not tried beaded cabochons yet but some day I will.

  4. Gorgeous work by you both, and so inspiring!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
