William Holland Class
Cabochons II | with Paul Roberts
6/06/2021 - 6/11/2021
Short Class Description (see Class pages for full description)
In this class emphasis will be put on fancy shapes and composite cabochons (domed and flat intarsia). I begin by introducing the basic machines to be used: trim saw, cabbing machine (Genie or Cab King), Intarsia Grinder, and buffer/polisher. We will be using both standard and more exotic template shapes to achieve spectacular domed cabochons like those preferred by most craftsfolk for wire wrap or inlay setting. Moving on, we will create calibrated stones with angled edges preferred for setting in silver or gold bezels. Diamond Pacific’s “Cab Rest” gadget will establish the initial gentle, uniform angle at the bottom of your cabs for ease of setting.
