how to use cabochon?

Cabochon is a type of gemstone that has a flat bottom and domed top, making it perfect for use in jewelry. Here's how to use cabochon in your jewelry projects:

1. Choose your cabochon: The first step is to choose the cabochon you want to use. There are many types of cabochons available, including amethyst, lapis lazuli and agate, etc.

2. Choose the setting: Once you have chosen the cabochon, you need to choose a mount that will hold it securely. There are many types of settings, such as claw, bezel and glue settings.

3. Prepare the setting: If you are going to use a claw or bezel mount, you will need to prepare it by bending the claws or cutting the bezel to fit the size of your cabochon.

4. Set the cabochon: Once you have prepared the setting, you can set the cabochon. If you are using a glue-on setting, you will need to apply a small amount of glue to the bottom of the cabochon before placing it in the setting.

5. Secure the cabochon: Finally, secure the cabochon in place. If you are using a prong or bezel setting, you can gently bend the prongs or push the bezel over the cabochon to hold it in place. If you use a glue setting, you will need to allow the glue to dry completely before putting on the jewelry.

For example, you can use a natural gemstone cabochon in a claw setting to create a beautiful ring, or a gemstone cabochon in a bezel setting to create a pendant.
