I signed up for the 10 week cabochon cutting class at Saint Lucie Rock and Gem Club. They have all the cabbing machines that you could want and at the end of the 10 weeks I had about 10 finished cabochons and a wealth of knowledge. My friends, Catherine, Deborah and Sarah also took the class and thanks to our teacher Hannah we were really very productive! I haven't incorporated any of the cabs into jewelry, yet, but I' satisfied to just sit and look at them for now, so pretty!
I signed up to teach a 10 week beginner's course at Saint Lucie County Rock and Gem Club in Fort Pierce, FL! The first (Byzantine) week went off pretty nicely although it kind of surprised me having 8 students signed up! Luckily I made enough kits to go around and two of the students, having had previous chainmaille experience, opted to skip the Byzantine weave and go right for this coming week's project Open Roundmaille!
