Lapidary kickoff!

Im super excited! Today was my first day at the North Brisbane Lapidary Club in Northgate and I was shown how to create my first cabochon! Although I am still underway with this process and have the polishing to do I am really happy with the progress so far!

 

Just getting the shape correct is the challenge, but once you have that right you can go ahead and adjust what you like and create unique shapes as you like. I have a plan with this process. I want to be able to cut stones specific for pieces that I am creating and even look at butting up stones against each other in settings. Allowing them to create an image in their own right!

Next week I will have this one finished and polished up with my sights set on creating something else, cut to the way I want them!!
