How Do I Make Small Cabochons Look Bigger?

question-mark-001I am looking for help on how to take a small insignificant cabochon, say 18mm round, and use other items to make the entire piece look larger and give more impact to the small cab; this one for a pendant.

Years ago I saw a site where a small cab such as a 20 x 20 mm square cab had been glued to a filigree, and then they had glued a rhinestone chain around the outer edge; then they kept adding more and more layers until they built it out about 2″ square!

It was absolutely awesome but now I can’t find it online! I can’t remember anything else they did to it specifically now that I want to do it myself.

Now I think that site is no longer online and all searches have come back unsuccessful; so any help you all would have will be tremendously appreciated.

Thank you I am just starting out!
