The St. Lucie Rock and Gem Classes have started ......Cab On!

First, the Cabachon Class and I completed the 36mm Center Snowflake Obsidian  for the center piece of
my Heidi Kummili " Pawley's Piece" which I am making in memory of Brittany Lynn.  I have my Laura Mears Black Cocker Spaniel piece and this lovely Snowflake Obsidian.  I now have four more to Cab along
with Brittany's Tags and other items to add.

Then on Tuesday it was Chainmailling Class with the Divine Ms. Genny Smith.  It was a blast and since I have mastered Byzantine, she let me start on Open Weave, a patterned I have just been dying to make.

It has truly been a fruitful week and I still have the Saturday " Lampworking " class to attend.  If I like " Lampworking" then I'll continue.  But knowing how much I just love a torch, this should be interesting.  My good friend Deborah Apodaca loaned me her Lampworking Kits so I did not have to lay out a considerable amount of money.  Thank you and many hugs girl for your thoughtfulness.

I have concluded that work is starting to interfere with Beading and Cabbing......common Lotto!

  1. Wow Catherine, beautiful job on both of your projects, the Snowflake Jasper cab is gorgeous and so is the chainmaille bracelet. I am learning how to do stone cabs too, but I do not know about chainmaille though, Lamp working glass is something I have always wanted to try, so good luck and have fun.
