First cab by Gergis
« on: August 15, 2014, 08:44:01 PM »

During his lesson yesterday, he made 3 pendants and a cab.  I'll post the pendants separately.  I gave him a low grade piece of Australian opal figuring that that would be a safe option.  Unfortunately his cab was absolutely beautiful and the lack of fire in the stone is my fault, not his. I should have given him better rough!  A very fine first effort.

You're right Frank, he needs better rough for the next one!
