WingSmith Cabochons - Art Glass & Bead Cabochons
I am Dee Wingrove-Smith, I started beading several years ago and have been running an Etsy store for 3 years and am now running my own website. I design, make and sell many different styles of high quality, affordable cabochons. I have a stock of finished cabochons ready to ship, and all other items are made to order and shipped within 3 working days (often sooner). All the images in the Shop are watermarked to prevent copying/downloading, when you place your order you will receive an unmarked version. The watermark is there to protect the designer(s) work.
What you can do with Cabochons
My cabochons are ready to be bezelled with beads, wrapped with wire, placed in pendant trays (see findings section in Shop) or used in polymer clay creations. Feel free to look through the Gallery to view customer creations using my cabochons, as well as my own designs. I have thousands of images for you to browse, and I also sell a tutorial that will help you bead embroider a bezel to make your cabochon into a pendant or bracelet. Check out the Gallery for more examples.
You can buy several tutorials in my shop, including a basic beaded bezel using bead embroidery techniques. Also keep an eye out for issue 61 of Bead (UK) magazine which will have a tutorial of mine using one of the new bead cabochon range.
I stock designs and images that my customers request and those that sell well at bead fairs. I am happy to take bespoke orders so get in touch (via the Contact Page) if you have any requests or queries. I regularly attend bead fairs in the UK, so keep an eye out on Facebook and here for my next fair dates (via the Fair Dates page). I order designs from other sources/designers as well as create my own and have permission to use these on my website.
"I was a frustrated beader, I love the beaded cabs I saw online but not enough cash for the gemstone cabochons, nor the skill to bead the glass ones. Then I found these at the Big Bead Show at Sandown and the tutorial that dee sells. The colours are crisp and clear, the attention to detail and finish of the cabs is second to none. The tutorial was easy to follow, step by step photos and instructions and I haven't stopped beading bezels and cabs since, thank you so much." -- Catherine, Cheshire, UK
