I fiddled around with a new Ice Drop idea today. I used a 1" cabochon, so the patterns I've been using would not work. I call this Sixes and Sevens, because all the rings and chains are multiples of six and the pattern is repeated seven times.
Since the design on the cabochon has a paper backing, I coated it with sparkly nail polish. I'm not sure the nail polish would keep the paper backing in place if it was soaked, but it should help keep the cabochon looking nice for a long time.
I'm not really fond of the uneven look of seven pattern repeats. I much prefer the symmetry of six. Still, if there's enough interest, I'll write up the pattern. I have quite a few 1" cabochons, so I'll keep experimenting!
