I was a little reluctant at first. I thought it would be very messy and boring. I even warned my husband (also taking the class) that I would probably only take a few classes. Forty five minutes into the class, I had cut my first cabochon. I turned to my husband and asked, "How much does one of these cab machines cost?"
Well, most good cab machines go for about $1,000. So, that cab machine is on the back burner for me probably for a good long while. However, I did learn a lot about the process of cutting cabochons, and for those of us who enjoy using cabs in our jewelry designs, I think it is helpful to have an understanding of the process.
