A little cabbing and weaving

Just a little that is. Time has not been a friend, but I have been able to get a few things done. I cabbed a couple of Malachite cabs and although it was messy, I really like this stuff. Its pretty soft material and it takes a good shine. I cabbed a Morgan HIll poppy jasper and dino bone cab but the pictures, didn’t turn out so well. I also wrapped a couple of pendants. A dino bone and a turquoise pendant.


Well hope you had a great weekend and have a great week to come!!

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!

Dino bone

Today was a great day for cabbing. Not too hot and no interruptions. I had a few cuts of dino bone and a couple of others. So I just had to use them up. My saw blade is busted so I have to use up what’s already cut up. I go thru these stages where I really like a certain rock for awhile and then go on to another. But while I’m obsessed its all about that rock. lol Right now its dino bone. Boulder opal is always at the top of my list tho. There’s always time for a boulder opal.
I also finished up a wrap of the Berrendo agate from last weekend. My goal was to showcase the cab since the color is so intense. I also wanted to keep the middle of the cab unobstructed all the way thru where its transparent.
Here’s the pics…


I hope your weekend was wonderful!

Mexican Chevron Amethyst

I love amethyst.  I’ve really enjoyed working some Chevron Amethyst this weekend.  I worked up a cab last weekend and its a wrap.  Today I worked a couple of cabs, but only have one to show.  The other was a sacrifice to the wind.  I hate it when you get to the last wheel wheel, think yeah it’s looking pretty good then in a quick flash, it’s gone.  I looked everywhere but who knows where that cab flew to.  I hope to get some more done tomorrow, we shall see.

Tourmalines

These pendants have taken me for quite a ride. But they’re finally done.  My daughter called the first one head over heels. Maybe you can see why… the second one is just plain crazy.

Thanks for coming by have a wonderful week!

Gifts

Well I received a box from a nice person on the RTH forum. She was kind enough to send a box of leather pieces plus a few gifts.  People in the rock hobbies are so kind. I was wanting some of that leather to use to polish boulder opal. I have enough now to last a very, very long time.  I’m gonna post some pics. I have also gotten the chance to do a lil cabbing and weaving silver.  I have to send a lil thank you, don’t I? 🙂

Day to play!

Wow, great weather for cabbing and just being outside. The sunstones I bought last weekend have been of really good quality.  I wish I could capture the chatoyancy in a picture. They are just beautiful and I’m sure they’re gonna make great pieces of jewelry. Well here are a couple that are finished as well as a couple of Mexican fire opals with different colors that are much more vibrant in person.
