Instructor: Michael Boyd

Are you passionate about gemstones but frustrated that all the stones you see are cut in shapes that don’t fit your work? Are you tired of the same old oval cabs and round brilliants? Are you ready to retake control of your own designs? Sign up for this inspirational workshop and learn how to design using stone as a medium–not only an accessory! Watch step-by-step demonstrations on how to cut and polish basic shapes and forms in stone. And then, combining metal work with lapidary, explore alternative, innovative ways of joining stone with metal by piercing, drilling, riveting, layering, grooving, laminating, tabbing, trapping and more. Students usually complete several projects, leading them in new directions on the next level of accomplishment.
