Learn the process of Intarsia cabochon making - the art of creating patterns with multiple colored stones to inlay like a jigsaw puzzle. You will be working with a prefabricated nickel silver belt buckle blank and an assortment of stones. Once you have mastered these techniques, you will be able to choose your own prefabricated buckles to work with, or make your own!
No prior experience necessary.
