Outrageous Cab Contest October 2017
« on: October 02, 2017, 02:45:19 PM »

Rules:
1) Cab must be made by you.
2) Cab must be made within the time period of this contest.  Contest begins on the first of the month and ends on 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.  NO pulling old cabs from your storage baskets!
3) As long as the basic shape is considered a cab it's golden.  You can enter intarsias and carved top cabs such as cameos etc.  After all, this is the OUTRAGEOUS cab contest!  We love free form cabs!  Pull out the stops and give us the best you have!
4) One entry per person please!
5) Please show photos of your slabs and preforms if you can so we can see your thought process and how you did things.
6) No finished jewelry pieces.  Just the cab.
7) Cab sets are OK.
8) This is only for bragging rights and your cabochon photo posted up top in the forums unless someone posts a lapidary related prize and wants to ship it to the winner of the contest.

Let the games begin!!!   :toothy10:

What, no entries this month?

We still have 15 days left.  I'll sweeten the pot with some slabs from my stash to the winner if we get more than 5 entries.   :coffee1:

I have had this slab of Rhodochrosite for a couple of years now, I figured it was time to cut it and I just as well enter it in the contest. I was hoping to get three stones out it but it fractured when I cut it.
