Lapidary meets Artistry

Creating cabochons is a fun lapidary hobby and here at the RTH Forum we encourage you to give it a try. We have many skilled members who create cabochons for collecting, selling or making into jewelry and we can help get you headed in the right direction. We have curated articles and tutorials for you here and a forum community to help you every step of the way.
