CaBezels and Stuff

Several months ago I bought a bunch of CaBezels to play with.  They are these fun mold shape that come from www.shadesofclay.com.  The molds have many different cab shapes with matching bezels.  So, you can cut out your cab then know that you have a bezel to fit.

The first one I made came out great.  Beginner's luck, methinks as I went on to have all kinds of trouble.  I couldn't get the cab to fit perfectly in the bezel without a space.  Then I tried putting canes on the cab and it came out great!
Rats, I thought I had the photo but in my delirium, I must have deleted it.  :(  But, it's in my Etsy shop so you can see it if you click on the link over there>>>>.  It's the red flowered one.

Then I decided to use up a bunch of beads I've had laying around doing nothing.  You know how we always have leftover beads no matter how much we plan?  Well, I have a ton of them so decided to use a bunch.  So, I went wild and made a big, bold, beautiful bracelet for the non-shy.  Even though these are not colors I would normally pick, I like this bracelet!  Oiks.  Blue. :(  Thank goodness for purple.  :D
Then I decided to make some cabs for bead embroidery.  More blue!!  hat is WRONG with me?  No.  Do NOT answer that!  But, I like these cabs, too.  :)  I decided that I will put holes in all my cabs which I guess, makes them beads.  ;(  I'm still gonna call them cabs.  I realized that if I merely glue on my cabs to Nicole's TERRIFIC Bead Backing, I have to bead up on the cab to make sure it doesn't come off the backing.  Sometimes, you lose a lot of the cab surface doing that so I thought, what if it had a hole and I could sew it as well as glue it?  Hmmmm, I is smart.  ;O  Worked great.  Now, if I have a cab that I want to really show off, I only have to sew one row of beads because it is really secure with gluing AND sewing!  So, here is the latest blueness from my table.

Hey Moe,

It's CL here. Just wanted to let you know I wore my bracelet this weekend and got tons of compliments. I wore it all day yesterday. The day was sunny and my bracelet sparkled like crazy. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I love it so much! It is one of my favorites pieces of jewelry. I can't wait to show it to my Ya Ya sisters this summer.

Thank you again,
CL (Heather)

P.S. I hope your hubby is still on the mend and feeling better every day. Give him my best.

THanks, Kathi. :) I put the cabs in my Etsy shop. I see I gotta ask Col to put my Etsy back on here so people can link to it.

MoeArt said...

Thanks, Janie! Where you been, girl? Haven't seen you in ages! :(

MoeArt said...

Hi MS! The new colors are just super! Are you really sending me some? YAY! Thanks a bunch! Yippee! xoxoxo

MoeArt said...

Hi CL,

I'm so happy that you love your bracelet! Did you wear your sandwich board that tells people where to shop for one almost as cool as yours? :D

Hubby isn't doing well at all. I just don't know what's wrong. I'll know more on Thursday, I hope. :( Thanks for thinking of him! Smoochies!

Cool, Cool, BLUE cabs. Will be fun to see them in their final resting place.
Backing sounds awesome.

Really sorry to hear that Moe. Poor man deserves a break and so do you. I will say a prayer for his speedy recovery ever day.

Much love,
CL

MoeArt said...

Thanks Anita! I'm almost wanting to make something with those blue cabs. Almost. :D

MoeArt said...

Thank you, CL. All prayers are more than welcome! And yes, I do need a break. I'm thinking about showing up on your mother's doorstep. What do you think? Maybe she will adopt me for a couple months. :D I'll offer to lighten her load of all those awful canes and all those burdensome supplies...you know..buttons and stuff. :) And I just KNOW she has too much wire. Gosh, I can really be a help to her! xoxoxoxoxoxo
