Super Sunday Cabbing

Super Bowl Sunday, and I get to cab til the game starts. Thats a wonderful day!.

I cabbed a small piece of Chrysocolla drusy that as left from a piece of stone I won on the Taogem forum.  It had some amazing blue green or teal colored druse and dark green malachite druse.  Its from Nuevo Mundo Imports. I highly recommend them if you want the best chrysocolla and malachite drusy. The crystals are so clear and shiny. Awesome stuff. Its pricey but you get what you pay for. I also cabbed another quartz drusy cab.

I also cabbed a Queensland agate. The Queensland agate has some very nice patterning and layers, plus a little drusy in the middle. Love it!

The icing on the cake?
Green bay won! yay!!

New year new outlook

Love these three day weekends.. Wish they were all three dayers. The weather was pretty nice so we got to get out and do a lil rockhounding. Found some nice colored pet wood and just checked out the scenery. I also got to finish a few wraps. Fun weekend so far and another day to go.


Have fun!

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!

Wire wrapping frenzy

So Christmas is only a few months away and I plan on doing a small local show so here is the beginning of a wire wrapping frenzy. Plus I wrapped a couple of pieces of moldavite for a Mom and her daughter.
Here are the pics.

Now on to make more! 🙂

Labor Day weekend

Three day weekends rock, literally. I got some cabbing done and even a little silver work. I need more time, all the time. lol
I had a small slab of Velvet Obsidian, and it was calling my name. The rock has beautiful colors. Its hard to get the pictures just right and capture the pinks and purples. I hope some came thru in the pics I’m about to post. There is also a small cab of flowering tube onyx. I have a very small amount of this rock and its pretty hard to find so I use it sparingly. They all came out with a great shine. I hope you like!


I also hope you had a great weekend..

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!
