A Cabochon Project

A cabochon is a stone which is cut, shaped, and polished for use in adornment such as jewelry, or for display in a collection. A low or high domed surface that accentuates the stones natural beauty is what typifies a cabochon. A well cut stone for the jewelry designer or the collector is my goal. This means a heightened awareness of form and function. Cabochons must be carefully conceived and implemented. For this project I am not using a dop stick. This is a straightforward and easy method for making a simple cab.
