Outrageous Cab Contest - October and November 2014
« on: October 01, 2014, 11:10:20 AM »

Rules:
1) Cab must be made by you.
2) Cab must be made within the time period of this contest.  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.  Afterall this is the OUTRAGEOUS cab contest!  We love freeform cabs!  Pull out the stops y'all and give me 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(s).
7) Cab sets are OK. (think pendant and matching earrings.)

So have some fun!    :blob5:

I'll go first, cleaned out the garage looking for the banded opal we collected this summer found it! First time I've worked this material it's very soft but colorful.

Gorgeous cab!  A little off on the color balance on the last picture there, but wow that one has some sweet patterns to it!   :icon_sunny:

very nice stone; hope you don't mind me comparing it to the bumble bee material but it's very similar looking only it is some sort of calcite and other hot spring mineralization

I'm making an executive decision and putting this contest through the end of November.  That should give folks some time to get cabs done.
