Probably a rather silly question, but I can't find any information anywhere.

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a decent tutorial or book on how to make settings for cabachons out of seed beads. I see them around quite often but nobody seems to know how to make them. Any help appreciated!

It sounds like what you need to look up is a beaded bezel for a cabachon. There are 2 ways to do this. One is to do a netted or peyote stitch around the outside of the stone. This leaves the back exposed. The other is to glue it to some sort of backing and then applique the beads on around it. The link below should give you some tutorials.
