New Cabochons In The Works!
Here's what I've been working on the last couple of days. Cabs, cabs and more cabs! With more planned in the near future. These are all ground and ready to channel. (except for the one uncut one in the picture) I plan to start channeling these cabs tomorrow.
The cabochons in this first picture are available and I can bear to part with them.
The cabs in the second picture I would really like to keep, but can probably be talked into parting with!
And as for the third and final picture-Hands off!!! These are MINE! ;) Although I can make more of the red and white cabs.
If you are into wire wrapping the channel around the edge can come in handy. Also different styles of wire work may not need the channel, but tend to hide it for the most part. Of course for those setting pretties in silver and gold-who will ever see the channel once it's in the bezel?
In the very back of the last picture you can see a few un-ground cabs. I will get to them tomorrow. I am letting the "ink" outlines set up a bit. I think squares are the hardest shape to do. Keeping them square is a real PITA! The more I have to mark & grind-the smaller they tend to get.
