Well even if I haven’t been able to cab very much I have been playing with rocks. This dino bone pendant has take me a couple of weeks to finish. What’s up with that? I just couldn’t end it or something.
The druzy Chrysocolla-Malachite rock is prize from a member on the taogem forum. The druzy is spectacular. The crystals are so clear and shine like you wouldn’t believe. I hope to cut it and make a couple of sparkly pendants soon. The cabs, moss agate and Stone canyon jasper. I cabbed them up last weekend, just hadn’t gotten around to posting so there they are..

The Moss agate is from Rare Rocks and gems’ awesome sales, and the Amazing Chryso-Malachite from Nuevo Mundo Imports

Stay dry and safe!

In the last few weeks

Its been so hectic. Getting ready for a small Christmas show and then Christmas itself. The boutique turned out ok and it was really fun. I hadn’t set up for one in quite awhile and it turned out pretty good. I wrapped so many pieces that I burned out for a little while it seems. I didn’t even want to look at a piece of wire. So I cabbed a little, very little, went out and found a few pretty rocks. Mostly red jasper and pet wood. Until a few days ago a friend sent a few awesome cabs and wanted one wrapped. I was back into wire. I couldn’t stop! I’m just grateful it was the weekend since I got no sleep. lol I hope he likes his pendant half as much as I like the cab and slabs he sent me. I even got a lil cabbing in today. Looks like I’m slowly getting back in the swing.


Another long weekend coming up.. yay!
Hope this one was great for you.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!



I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season, with lots of family, friends and good food..

Mini wrapping frenzy

Still trying to get as many wraps as possible finished by next month. I’m grateful that Thunderbird had their big sale, since I’m almost out of silver wire. I wanted to wrap a few quartz crystals and am currently working on some dino bone wraps. I also fit in a little cabbing, have to have a stone to wrap, right? Here’s what I have finished so far.

Thanks for stopping by!

Almost no wire weekend

This weekend was a great cabbing and smithing weekend.  I’m thinking on making a couple of pieces for the contest so that I can hopefully pick the best to enter.  I have started the 1st one and have been cabbing so I can start the 2nd.  I’m really liking how this one is turning out so far.  I’m not sure if posting pics is ok as far as the contest goes, so I’m gonna post the sketch and the pics of the cabs.  The sketch is a rough one, just fyi. 🙂 In this piece I’m using the Berendo agate cab from the last post. The only wire was  a wrap I finished for a friend.  Made out of turquoise, coral and a sapphire.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you had a great weekend!

Finally a new wrap

Well I have finally finished a wrap.  I’ve been taking it sorta easy for a few days, due to my lil accident.   Its been ok tho, just a little recharging.  This is a piece that you will notice in a prior post that just wasn’t finished. The flower is from outside of my house just like the others.

Thanks for coming by!!
