Our jewelry shop lead will be teaching the beginner basics of cabochon cutting and grinding on the three new machines available at the maker space. We will start from a rough stone (Either bring one or we have some at the maker space) and cut it into a slab on one of the saws. Next we will trim the slab into a shape and polish it on the diamond polishing machine. This will give you the chance to customize your jewelry from any rough stone into a finished cabochon before setting.

This will also be a chance to get authorized on rock saws and cabbing machine.

If you signed up for class, I will be providing a colored stone for your cutting and polishing. What colors or stones are you interested in?

We had a full class last night thanks so much for everyone that participated hope you get good use out of the cabbing machine and saws
