Yvonne Williams of BacktoEarthCreations,  is one terrific crafter who has some pretty neat ideas on jewelry making.  I have shared a number of her tutorials before. 

This one is her clever idea on how to set a cabochon in leather!  She uses two pieces of leather, one of which is a ring.  The bezel is laced together at the edges. The lacing is also decorative and not merely functional. I do like how she wore her finished design on a simple leather cord at the end.  It really shows off the pendant.

The trickiest bit has to be the finishing as the leather ends have to be tucked in.  

I was briefly confused with the Aussie wax she was using to defuzz the cut leather edges. I initially thought she might be using the Aussie brand of hair wax! 

But what she meant was the Aussie leather conditioner!  It's made with beeswax.  I wondered if a beeswax wood conditioner like the one I use would also work?  It turns out I can.  For example, this brand of wood conditioner is also great on leather!  Maybe it won't be that far fetched to use the hair wax too as hair, wood and leather are organic materials!
