Cabochons are flat back resin pieces or components ,which are widely used in jewelry making.
Usual designs of cabochon are flowers, classic Victorian style or vintage style picture of a queen, angel etc.
In jewelry making,a cabochon setting is usually required as it can’t be used by its own. Usually it is pasted into the setting or a filigree connector.
As I said these are the most usual methods. Gold petal accessories in zibbet.com ,has used the same cabochons to make unique hair clips, magnets, ear studs etc. …
This is what I call ‘ thinking out of the box’.
