Cabbing Druzy

So I cut the Chrysocolla side of the rock from the prior post. It was a little tough, being that I didn’t want to cut it wrong or lose any of the druzy. I then cabbed it and was really happy with the outcome. I also cabbed a piece Morrisonite that takes a shine like glass with very little effort. Love this stuff. Here’s a few clickable pics.

If you want to buy some awesome druzy, just go to Nuevo Mundo Imports he still has some rough and slabs for now anyway.

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!!

Apples and weaving silver

Well this weekend was pretty much a bust as far as getting to any hobby activities. I have a couple of wire wraps started but nothing finished and no cabbing. I lost my buddy and friend Saturday evening. My old 12 inch powerbook died. While I understand that its just a laptop computer, it was like a good friend too. It had all my pictures and bookmarks, it was small and familiar. I was thinking that I would have to buy another soon, but I was in no hurry and really enjoyed my lil companion. The battery would no longer hold a charge for long but no matter. It held so much more. I listen to Leo Laportes podcasts and know all about backing up files. But until it happens to you, do you know just how much you’re gonna miss what you have stored on the little brains or extensions of ourselves. Luckily my husband thinks he may be able to get into the old hard drive and salvage some pictures and maybe some documents. I had been bracing myself for the day so There wasn’t much on there that I really need. I bought a shiney new aluminum macbook pro. Its a lil bigger than my old powerbook and the screen has a really nice picture. There is so much more software too. Bigger hard drive, bigger everything. I like small. My last one fit on my lap better. lol There are worse things in life, I know. Its just funny how a little change can be a big one. Well, things will be better, I’m sure they will.. 😉 I wish for you that nothing breaks and if you know the end is near for one of your dear friends, brace yourself… and umm back up your data.
So here are some pics of a few components I’ve made and hopefully they will turn into some nice pieces.


Have a great week!

Beautiful 4th of July!

The weekend was a long and beautiful one. I hope you all had a really nice holiday. As usual it went fast.
I’ve been looking for some kind of inspiration and I stumbled on a blog by Twisted sister art. Well this lady is just amazing. Her style is unique and inspiring.
I did get a chance to do a lil cabbing and wire wrapping. I’ve been trying to change wrapping style a bit, but I’m gonna have to practice. I tend to get bored easily and I like a good challenge.
The cabs are peridot, garnets, fire agates, Topaz and Morgan Hill poppy jasper. As for the wrapping. Ok the first one, I’m still on the fence about. Reminds me of a tadpole. 🙂 The peridot one I like better. But then again its closer to my original stuff. So Let me know what you think of the tadpole. Here are few pics.


Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by. ☮
