Great day on Sunday with only a small crew of members attending. Lost wax casting went off with the normal efficiency and a few failures for which we did not have an answer. Most of the members who cast some jewellery spent part of the day cleaning up and polishing their creations.
Richard had his own show and tell with a large piece of mother of pearl that he purchased on their recent trip to Broome. Richard had made some cabochons of the mother of pearl and is now busy setting them in bezel settings. Interestingly, Richard has made a box bezel with a cutout back and then turned it over so that the rub over edge is at the back of the setting. Looks very nice and impressed the other members. Richard also took the opportunity to cab a few pieces of Prehnite from the dish of slabs donated.
After several weeks of the tumbler running in the shed, Carol has produced a few kilos of tumbled polished stones ready for next year’s show.
