Here is the continuation of my Cricula collection. This time round, the wild silk cocoon cabochon is held in a sterling silver prong setting. Like the rest of my Cricula collection, this one is 100% HANDMADE!
The golden lace suspended in stardust resin is natural. It is produced by a wild silkworm called Cricula Trifenestrata. This wild silkworm becomes a moth when it reaches adulthood.
Embedding these silk cocoons in clear resin works for me as I can turn them into wearable jewelry however way I want to. I’ve added some mica powder to give the cabochon some sparkle. You will see the suspended cocoon piece with ease and when placed under the light amongst tiny specks of star dust floating about.
I must admit that this cabochon is a little tricky to work with. The cabochon is literally a triangle. In a normal setting, one of the three sides of the triangle will be chosen to be the base. When the cabochon is set in this normal setting, you will be staring at a ‘line’ in the middle where the 2 sides on the right and left of the base rises up and meet at the top.
I placed this cabochon in the normal position and looked at it hard. That line in the middle blocked my view of the silk cocoon and it just wasn’t great. I found that the best view of the silk cocoon is really on one side of the triangular cabochon. I call this the awesome side. So how can I make this awesome side face up? The answer is in the setting you see. It is totally different, very unconventional but uniquely right for this particular cabochon. So when I wrote the words, “however way I want” above, I mean it! (*laughter*) Now you can have an unobstructed view of the gold silk cocoon.
The whole setting is made of sterling silver wires. It is tall but slim.
