Lapidary - Cabochon Cutting

Lapidary refers to the cutting, shaping and polishing of precious stones. In our Lapidary classes we are cutting cabochons for jewelry or belt buckle making. Schack's studio has a Lortone trim saw, stainless, 6" arbors and a polishing wheel for all your cabochon making needs.

Beginning Lapidary - Cabochon Cutting

Cabochon cutting is a method of cutting gemstones with a convex, rounded surface that is polished but unfaceted. The back of a normal cabochon-cut stone is flat.

Students will learn how to take a stone from flat slab to a beautiful polished piece ready for jewelry or other artwork.
