American Lapidary Artisans post 2

Rod from Foxcabochons has a great selection at super prices, he has 42 years of experience at making cabochons.  I had to put a cab on reserve for myself ;^).... so you can't have it! LOL but seriously check out these selections I found that I thought you would like.

I love the red and brown shades. Who knew Dino bones were so pretty :^)

 

Crazy Lace Agate (CLA052115)

This shape is great, the natural space in the cab is pretty cool


 Agate Cabochon (A061915)
 I love the sharp point on this one and the dark colors.









Take a look at the beauty of Elementaldesigns!!! Denise's cab's are works of art, the type of cabochon's that wind up in a serious collectors display or a museum. Incredible stones!  She is self taught and has a great eye for design.



 





and since I am crazy for those Sonora Sunrise Chrysocola cab's I will add one to this post too, I loooove it...

alot of these are under $3.00! I was so excited to find his shop, I have a new addiction,... rocks! 




I am not being paid in any form to promote these people. I just love rocks and the artisans who try to support themselves and thier families with it. We NEED to support each other by buying from each other. We need to start producing our own goods and help each other stay in the game. 
"create and prosper!"  lol I'm such a dork ;^) .... but seriously
