Discover a way to net an oval cabochon in a unique shape! This Dagger shape is a great project for intermediate wre artists who are looking for a special way to spice up their style.
The dagger shape is an allusion to heraldic symbolism: in the times where knights protected the realm, the dagger emblem represented justice and military honor.
Wrap your favorite 40x30 cabochon or cameo in this frame, and you'll enjoy how this shape blends the cabochon into a subtle dart shape. Stunning on an 18" neck cord. You can easily adapt this design to smaller or freeform cabochons once you've perfected the 40x30 size.
The PDF is 14 pages with over 60 clear, step by step pictures to guide you through the process. You can add beads as a variation, too!
