O Pretty is a neat way to create bezels to trap a variety of round cabochons. For a vintage feel opt for the gorgeously facetted Swarovski Solaris stones, or maybe you prefer the gentle gleam of Soft touch cabochons with their contemporary colours. O Pretty has a pretty beaded back has a little embellishment too.
