From Rock to Cab to Pendant: The Movie

For those of you who are curious.... Here is a movie slideshow from start to finish- rock to cab to pendant. (Well... I didn't start taking snapshots until I had already done a little forming.)

This is a hunk of turquoise colored jasper that was thrown in a box I won on eBay. The different colors are due to different lights and the auto function I used while I was doing the grinding and polishing. The pictures of the rock and the finished piece are most accurate for color. This took a killer shine!!

Enjoy :)

  2. Thanks Christine :) That was the first out right rock that I worked on. It was a fun challenge and I must say I am very happy with how it turned out. I was afraid the whole time that I would grind too much off! :)

    1. Thank you Cindy! I'm glad you like it. :) But, don't be envious. I was for toooooo long. If you want to do this- go for the gusto and find a local rock club and learn it. You won't be sorry. :)

    1. Thank YOU, Debi for the great feedback. Thank for letting me know I am reaching you with something right. :)

      Please, if this is something you want to do, go for it! Find a local club and see if they have equipment or if someone has the tools to teach you and is willing to do it. You won't regret it. My only regret is in waiting so long. :)
