Yea (sheepishly) I'm sorry about the delay Cindy. I just get busy and tired these days so things take longer than I'd like.

Here are the finished cabs.
As you can see, the top right bead and the second black and blue one had a touch of bead release inside when I slumped them and therefore don't have a smooth top. This can be cleaned out and refired with no trouble. I seldom slump round beads like that - I prefer them split because you can see the design better. My very favorite beads to slump are bicones, but then bicones are my favorite shaped beads in just about all circumstances I guess.....

And a side view so you can get an idea of thickness:
