NO, NO, NO, not that! 🙂 It is entirely something different.
Anyone who has been following my blog knows that I have many hobbies. Well, I just added another one to the growing list. Like I don’t already have enough to keep me busy. Anyway, I have been tumbling rocks in my tumbler and I have been wanting to get a Cabochon machine so I can make my own cabs. Unfortunately for me they are really expensive. So I did what I could and while I was at a Rock Shop in a nearby town I purchased a Cabochon. I already had ordered wire and I had it at home waiting for me to do something with it. I have 21 gauge copper, 16 gauge square copper, 21 gauge sterling silver and last but not least 16 gauge half round sterling silver. All the wire is tarnish resistant. I also have some tools for working with all this wire. So after postponing my first attempt at Wire Wrapping a Cabochon for a week I made myself sit at my desk tonight and see what I could do. It seemed like it took me forever but I finally got it done.
I will let you decide if I should quite my day job (even though I am retired) or pursue making some more of these little puppies.
I did mar up the wire a little but I am learning you know! 😉 I do hope to get better when I try some smaller cabs.
Again, all comments, good, bad or indifferent are welcome.
