Our First Cabochons

What we did on Sunday
Hubby and I took a class today on making cabochons.  Here are our very first cabs, mine is on the left and his is on the right.  I think we did fantastic for our first time.  We still the to clean off the dabbing wax, but they are ready to set in to something special for each of us.


  1. Wow! That really opens up all kinds of wonderful jewelry opportunities. You'll be able to say that you made every part of your jewelry now! :)

  2. Hey, congratulations! I love lapidary and get completely lost in it when I'm at my little Genie and I know you'll get addicted, too. I'm not a dop wax user, preferring to feel the stone in my fingers but if you need some, I still have a partial box that I'll send you. Just send me a convo and I'll get it in the mail.

  3. Great job Evie. I always wanted Jim to me lapidary but we never got around to it. I do have a local rock shop that gives free lessons...some day! Can't wait to see what you guys create.

  4. Ladies, I'm hooked!!!! Can't wait to get back to shop and cab more rocks. Now, I just have to win the lottery so I can retire early!!!
