bunch of cabs from the snowy days of winter
« on: March 30, 2017, 11:41:50 AM »

    Not the best pictures. This is about 1/2 of the cabs I did in January and February. The big group pile is all Deer Sky jasper except for one piece of the Original Owyhee picture jasper.

Its nice to see an accumulation of product for one's efforts. That is pretty material.

Those are beautiful! I love the miniature scenes each one captures.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

Nice set of stones.  I love the different Picture Jaspers as they are such fun to "frame" the picture in the cab.  I have question do you tumble finish your stones or hand polish?

Nice cabs! I'm the same I do most my cabs in the winter. Once the weather breaks I'm rockhounding every weekend if possible.

I love Jasper and these are all so beautiful! I have always loved Picture Jasper, but the ones above them almost look like Japanese Kanji characters! Wonderful work!

My first cab is from a piece of jasper I found on the beach in Newport, OR my first Mother's Day, 1983. I made it into a bracelet for my daughter Christmas 2017.

Beautiful work! I love the landscapes! We just moved a few months back and all of my equipment is buried in the garage. I do have a Cab King, however, that is portable and I am seriously ready to set it up on my front patio and get back to cabbing.....I have been drooling over everyone's work since I joined the forum a few days ago!
