Here we present a finished Carnelian pendant supported by a piece of rough Carnelian to illustrate the sorts of things we do in our workshop.
The cabachon was first cut as a slab from the rough rock and was then shaped on our cabachon machine and finally polished on a felt wheel with cerium oxide polish.
The cabachon was then wrapped using sterling silver round and half round wire.
I must admit that I find Carnelian to be one of the most rewarding semi precious stones to work with.
