"Is called lapidary to the person whose trade is to carve precious stones.”
Those of you who know me know that I am passionate about being in control of all the processes of my work, so that it is 100% handmade and does not pass through other hands.
I have always liked precious stones, I have a devotion to turquoise, so when I discovered the work of stoning I could not resist trying to find out how to learn it.
I found a course and without thinking I signed up, just thinking that I could make my own cabochons, starting from a rough stone and giving it the shape I wanted to make my jewelry... a dream come true.
Here I show you briefly the process, once the stone is cut, it is roughed in the emery. Then, we proceed to carve it giving it the shape we want, in this case it was oval and finally we polish it so that it is shiny and beautiful. This was my second cabochon from an amazonite that I turned into a nice ring.
