Default knob settings? (drawer/cabinet pulls)

Hi! I would like to make some knobs with fused glass… does anyone know where I can buy just the setting? Something like this:

5 Pack - Cosmas 6825ORB-C Oil Rubbed Bronze Cabinet Hardware Square Knob with Clear Glass - 1-1/4" Square https://a.co/d/dMW23zp

sorry for the link, I wanted to do a screenshot but Tapatalk wouldn’t let me upload it

any leads would be so highly appreciated! look how cute my cabochons are:

If it were me...hmmm...will this be subjected to heat other than just daily heat (is it in the garage or something)? If not, I would find someone who does 3d printing to design something & print it out for you. I'm afraid that's way beyond my skills though or I'd offer to do it for you. Or maybe someone who works with Bronze can cast it for you. If the ones are Amazon are the right size though, I would just get those and then apply heat to what's in there till it breaks or melts out, or try prying it out.

Sorry I can't provide an easy link to what you're searching for.

I say glue in your cabochons using epoxy.

Lawless has a whole section of DIY hardware. I've bought from them a few times, no problems at all.

Yes, as Rebecca and Dix said! I’ve used their findings to make knobs, although mine were lampwork and not fused so I made them on a BHB mandrel and then epoxied in the finding. Great company, I’ve even ordered cabinet handles from them before and was impressed by their great customer service! One time they couldn’t fulfill my entire order so called to let me know so I could source the extra pieces from another company. I was really impressed!

The setting you showed would involve a lot of cold work on your pieces. Doable, but not time efficient. Many of the dlawless findings might be more efficient.

�� you guys! Thank you so much! This is exactly what I wanted. I felt like I wasn't using the right search words or they really don't sell them on Amazon...
