First sphere
« on: October 17, 2018, 12:54:58 PM »

Ok, Ok, Sandsave I'm getting there.  Had to figure out the picture resizing.  Okay Thanks to my Mentor Sandsave I have started making spheres.  This is my very first sphere.  Its just an agate out of Levan Utah.  Have several others I will post very soon as I need to work on the photography a bit.

Nice Sphere!
Bluewood picked one one hardest agates I've ever worked! I went to his shop in a far off distance place they call the Happy Valley. I was thinking he would maybe make his first sphere out of something semi soft oh no he wanted to use the Levan Agate!!
He brought it to our club meeting last month,finished, it is a beautiful sphere.
I should send a piece to jhon to see if it's not one of the hardest agates he's ever worked.

That is outstanding for your first sphere.  Of course, you have a master sphere maker as a mentor.   :glasses9:

Looking forward to seeing your others as you finish them.

Beautiful. The others will be easier. We need to get you some rainbow oynx. It’s super easy to do. I will bet that sandsave has a piece he got from me that you could steal. I can bring him some more to quartzite
