Learn the art of cutting stone! Lanny will teach you how to turn a rough stone into a shaped and formed cabochon ready to use in jewelry or for your display cabinet. For your first stone you will learn to cut an agate into an oval shape.
Sam will teach you how to create a prong setting out of sterling silver, which you will then make into a pendant using the cabochon you cut in the previous class!
Please bring cash or checkbooks as there is a $17 materials fee made payable to Samantha. There will be an approx $3-5 charge for the rock slab you pick out to cut. Please arrive a few minutes early to pick that out at the NW Rockhounds shop. Feel free to bring a sack lunch as there will be a break.
