For our next "Finish It" get-together, bezels were made for each of these beautiful non-calibrated Caribbean blue glass pebble cabs and soldered to an open backplate.
It saves a lot of time to make multiples of the same thing at the same time. However, making multiples of the same thing at the same time makes it almost impossible to pair up cabochons with their corresponding bezels so labeling is a must. A small piece of painter's tape was attached to the back of each cab with an arrow that points toward the bezel seam. A number that corresponds to the bezel is also put on the tape. It is hard to see, but the cab number is lightly engraved inside each bezel backplate.
Pro Tip: Glass pebble "cabochons" can be found at most dollar type stores. Just make sure the color goes through the pebble and is not just painted on.
