Ocean Jasper Slabs Now Available....

Looking to create some lovely cabochons? Just finished slabbing some gorgeous Ocean Jasper material.

Ocean Jasper is also called Orbicular Jasper and was found only at a remote location on the coast of northwest Madagascar at the ocean's edge. Ocean Jasper is reported to have been mined out in 2006, and the availability of good ocean jasper is becoming very rare. These gorgeous Ocean Jasper Slabs have loads of character and lovely crystalline and orbicular patterns -- Will make stunning cabochons!

All slabs and Ocean Jasper Jewelry are One-of-a-Kind and available on both our main website or in our Etsy store.

Brightest Blessings & thank you for your continued Patronage!

Bezel Setting Pointer

When bezel setting a cab that has rather sharp corners, have you ever had problems pushing the metal down at the corners? -- It’s a common problem often causing a wrinkle in your bezel - and a grimace on your face. In order for a bezel to capture the stone, the top edge of the bezel must be compressed and become shorter to lay down onto the stone. With a round or oval stone this naturally happens as you push and burnish the bezel. But when setting a stone with corners, the tendency is to push the long sides of the bezel down first. No compression occurs along the sides, and all excess metal is left at the corners. Compressing everything there is difficult. Often the only way to remove the extra metal at the corner is to make a saw cut and fold the two sides in to touch. If you want a smooth bezel all around the corners, the simple solution is to set the corners of the bezel first. Then push in and burnish the sides. In this way the necessary compression is distributed along the length of all sides and not forced to occur at the corners. With the corners set first, the top edge of the bezel can easily be compressed along the sides. HTH!
