Lapidary

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.

Lapidary I

Students will learn techniques to shape a slab of stone into a cabochon suitable for use in jewelry or other art work (hardness no greater than 7).
