Semi DIY - Nautical and Mermaid Cabochon Magnets

Semi DIY refrigerator magnet makeover. Easy, peasy! Our refrigerator has a few magnets ranging from cooking measurements, to bare, plain and boring.  Mind you, there aren't many but, I wanted to get some that were of similar themes.

I didn't see ones I liked and remembered a shop on Etsy called Flora's Findings that was so helpful to me months before regarding shipping insurance.

Flora literally has hundreds of glass cabochon cameos in all sorts of themes that she makes. She offers setting frames for them separately that you glue the cabochon into. 

I only needed four maybe, six.  I couldn't decide what to get and ended up with ten!
 I went with two ships, four mermaids, and four lighthouses.

Flora included some care info with the cabochons.

Glue a good size magnet on the back using glue suitable for metals, and viola!  Your magnet board or refrigerator will have a mini makeover.

I like the ships the best.  What ones are your favorite?

Oh, these are lovely. And my favorites are the ships, of course. Nothing like a sailing ship!
