Looking back now I can't remember why I never had any desire to cut my own stones! I took a private lapidary class last week at a local rock shop and I have been back in quite a few times now to use their machines. It's a little wet and messy but the end result is so much more inspiring to me now that I am hooked! Here are some of the fruits of my labor...
My first two stones, he said I was a natural =)
From this..... to this!
My "office" for a few days and beautiful stones for my labor!
Silversmith and teacher of refined jewelry arts, basically that means I am obsessed with metal and passionate about teaching!
