Did you make the cabachons? If so how?  I think they are my new obsession!  Grin

Hi Pinky!
 Most are Lucite, I think all the ones here are vintage, you can do a Google and Etsy search, so far I haven't found a flippin' ting on Ebay, but I would think sometimes there should be?!

I can never find cabs on Ebay either. Perhaps we are looking in the wrong section, but I swear I've done a general search and nothing pops up either.  Huh

Totally unrelated to a specific  Lucite search, I've found vintage items by Google-ing them with ebay in my search terms "vintage blah-blah ebay" , when they weren't showing up in my Ebay search, I have no clue how to search that site!

Love Lucite! Celluloid faux ivory is really neat too.
There is some Lucite on Ebay but people often don't know exactly what they're selling so it'll be listed as celluloid, plastic, acrylic, resin, etc. I usually just search "vintage cabochon" .There are a ton on Etsy, but again, not always properly labeled.

These are totally gorgeous!  I also wish I knew how to make the cabachons... but appreciate the search tips.  Really lovely pieces!  Love the quote from your daughter--that's too cute.

Lucite is a trade name for a specific brand of acrylic, so you could always do some searching for info on acrylic jewelry making, and there are various places online to buy acrylic sheet-

but to cast it rather than buy sheets of solid colors and laser cut it or use a jewelers saw, I have NO idea!
