Lapidary is the work involved in engraving, cutting, or polishing gemstones.  Stone is a fantastic material and once you learn the basics on cutting and shaping rock, you can sculpt anything.  In this class we will cover the machinery and tools needed to work this material into beautiful objects.  We will use a trim saw to cut away the desire piece of stone we want to shape, then we will use a cabbing machine to cut this stone into cabochons.  We will also cover using a flexshaft for carving designs in stone that give your jewelry a unique touch.
