Cabs Cabs and more Cabs

Shops like these make me wish I was a Silver artist.  Or had more skills with drilling holes in stones, or creating bezels. Check out Silurian Era on Etsy. They have some of the coolest stone cabs I have ever seen. Not that I've shopped a lot for cabs, but I have seen them here and there. I picked out some of my favorites and threw em in a collage. Drool-worthy, yes?

  5. I haven't ever drilled holes in rocks - probably really tricky because of the crystaline formations, but I did read some stuff about drilling into sea glass. The trick is to go slowly, not to push the drill.
    I hope this helps you out.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
