I buy a lot of handmade glass, and this time I bought “seconds”, which means some of the cabs had melted together or were chipped or had some other “flaws”. This cab had a tiny red cab melted into it (as seen on the photo), which I loved immediately and decided to use as an advantage and a creative opportunity, as I had beads of the same colour and even the same kind of shiny finish. Unfortunately I ended up covering most of the original red part so that the wire wrapping was sturdy enough to hold everything together. You can still see enough of it to appreciate the idea.
I had time to rethink the design and this is what came out.
The base is made of a brass connector, which happened to have a perfect spot for a round cabochon in the middle. It seemed suitable enough for steampunk style. I like the unusual shape it became.
