I’ve started to cut my own stones!

I’ve started to cut my own stones!

I am very excited about this new venture. I have been making my own jewelry for over 25 years now and I have finally moved on to the next logical step. Learning to cut my own stones that I will be using in my jewelry! I took a lapidary class at the local rock club last month and learned how. My instructor was excellent and I learned a lot from him. He was such a good teacher that one of my stones won a blue ribbon with a score of 99 out of 100 in the rock club’s annual competition!  Not too bad for a beginner!
