The majority of the group hadn't set cabochons before, but they all produced beautiful work - just take a look! I always love how one basic technique can have so many different uses and end results. I'm off to tidy all the tools away while you admire their work!
|Syd's purple charoisite pendant - the beautiful stone works brilliantly in a simple organic setting|
|Anna's pietersite pendant - her clever use of the square of silver I gave each person reminds me of origami!|
|Carol's carnelian pendant - I love the texture she used!|
|Helen's jade pendant - the simple setting shows off the stone really well|
|Jenny's labradorite pendant - I really like the way she's used such different shapes. They've made a stunning pendant.|
|Sara's hematite pendant - the perfect "go with anything" piece of jewellery!|
P.S. Syd, Anna and Jenny used stones from my friend Brenda's etsy shop - she let me have a box of stones for them to pick from if they wanted something a bit more special than my basic cabs!
P.P.S. I have only three dates left for private tuition before I go on maternity leave so if you'd like to come and have a great day learning new skills in my workshed you'd better get in there quickly - this time yesterday I had five dates left! You can find the dates and more details here. I'm also teaching a beginners jewellery taster day for Eastleigh college on Saturday 20th November - details can be found here.
