Member Charlie Rhoads will give a demonstration and talk about cutting, polishing and making cabochons.

This involves many hours of patient attention to detail and being very careful not to cause injury to one’s fingers! The results are beautiful.

If you are just starting out with lapidary and cabochon making (or just curious about the process in general), this is your chance to get tips and tricks from one of the best cabbers in the area - don’t miss out!

Looking Ahead:

Anyone can sign up to bring snacks for a monthly meeting - just let the club secretary know in advance so we don’t have to deal with the problem of too many snacks!
