Chatty is happy to have completed two of her cabochon pieces.
She wore one (the unichite) necklace to a party over the weekend, and got good reviews.

This Dalmation Jaspar cabochon is a pendant that can be worn on many different necklaces (or even as a brooch):

Any cabochon Chatty designs can be created either way, of course. She has just been experimenting with both types.
Chatty is quite pleased – which is a good thing, because from start to finish, each of these took about 25 hours to create.
If you are wondering as to why these creations take so long, please view the progress reports here and here.
