From a very early age, artisan Thomas Baurley started learning lapidary as a enhancement to his rock collecting skills. He had a diamond rock saw, grinder, polisher, tumbler, and various other tools he used to make jewelry, cabachons, boa ties, and rings. He also learned silver smithing from the local rock shop.
Soon we will be posting pictures of some of his old works and collections.
