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!

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? 🙂

We are having a heat wave!

The best thing about the bay area is the weather. Usually that is. Today the sun got us into the hundred degree stuff! Yesterday was just as bad too. That said outside activities were morning ones and then outta the heat the rest of the day. I did my best to make a new piece or at least start one but to no avail. I have wrappers block. That’s what my husband calls it. lol 🙂 I finished one pendant that I had started during the week and thats about it. I was wanting to break out and try something a lil different so, yeah, scrap metal baby!.. I know your probably tired of the lil green stones I’m so happy about but seriously, I’m gonna show you the other one I had in the first batch then I promise to keep going with new stuff. That said here ya go….


I hope you all had a great weekend.
Stay cool!

Lovely break…

Its been great, the one extra day. Every weekend should be three days. Got lots done the cabbing in the last post. Even finished a couple of wraps. I was looking thru the slabs and pieces of rock I had because the cabbing contest on the gemstone board and found the RSJ slices. Well take a look at one of the slices, what do you see?
Here they are:


Well hope you had a great weekend!
