I love making cabochon jewelry. Cyanotypes make the perfect pairing for this lovely style of pendant. Here are my cabochon jewelry cyanotype pendants – they can also be used as key chains!
Cabochon pendants have a flat metal back and a curved glass dome top.
The left pendant is a real tiny cyanotype done with a baby fern. I have to find the very smallest ferns I can, to be able to make small enough cyanotypes to fit into the pendants.
The right pendant is a print of a larger cyanotype of a full fern, originally done on corrugated paper. A print has to be used for this, because a corrugated surface would not sit securely beneath the cabochon top.
These cabochon pendants are only $5 each. If you live near the Uxbridge BVAA gallery, several options are available there to view in person.
