WT #114, starting lapidary work for cabochon inlay.
Started cutting and grinding cabochons for the inlay ring on the top shoulder of the vessel. Got 5 cut and shaped today. It looks like there will be about 28 or so required. Lots left to do and then many many polishing steps. In the photo these are only ground to 320 grit ... the final product will have 50,000 grit diamond finish.
