Clip Art

I worked for a long time to come up with a way to make my own cabochons, using art prints under glass.  I love the versatility of this.  Plus, it's something different.

Etsy has wonderful clip art/mixed media artists that sell downloadable images.  Really wonderful diversity.  They come in all shapes and sizes.  And, with a good editing program (I recommend Print Shop), you can create your own sizes, mix up your own clips, and even change colors.  Endless!

It's changed the way I approach beading, removing any limits.


  1. Skylar, this is such an awesome idea! I love the clip art cabs you sent me, especially the one with the butterfly -- so pretty!

    I've been thinking of ways to incorporate my paintings into my jewelry, and I think your way might work. Maybe sometime I can send you some mini art to play with. :)

  2. These are just lovely! You are correct, they are unique and different. Do you sandwich them between glass, or resin?

  3. You really have removed all limits from your creativity! That's incredible and I applaud you for that as well as your absolutely stunning work :)
