Intarsia Gemstone Cabochon For Silver Solder Jewelry Design

by georgeingraham on February 9, 2010

This is my first attempt at making an intarsia !

A bit of a disaster..

It should have been more obvious to me while grinding down the flat edges of the Obsidian that it was not nearly good enough. As can be seen at the joints.

I knew the top edges were a bit chipped, but thought that by the time I took it down a bit that those would disappear. Maybe they would have if I had ground her down more.. It’s just that the dome is pretty low as it is, so will have to think about that next time.

Also will be sure to do a much better job on the inner part of the frame flat edges. No chips allowed next time !

Oh well……. First try, next one will be better !
