Outrageous Cab Contest January/February 2020
« on: January 06, 2020, 06:20:32 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:

Crap, I just realized its the last day of the month and I intended to get an entry in this time.  I cut half a dozen cabs this last week and so I let the wife choose her favorite.  This Owyhee was the winner.

Slab and preform are one and the same...

I just went out to the shop and tried to snap a couple pics with my phone.  No time to set up a good photograph.

I'm going to extend the contest for a month.  Been busy and time got away from me.   :Bash:
