Jim Ferland's Profile
My name is Jim Ferland and I am Cabochon Designz. Just me.... no big organization.... just me.
I have been an avid nature lover, camper, hiker and rock enthusiast since I was 5 years old and went camping with my Dad for the first time - in a hurricane! The lashing rain, wind and lightening was soooo cool!!
Anyway - I thought about becoming a Geologist, but didn't. I thought of becoming a lot of other things too - and didn't. But I DID become a lot of different things and have always led an interesting life pursuing a wide variety of cool stuff. I became a mold-maker, where I learned to hand diamond polish hardened steel - training that serves me well as a lapidary. I have worked in thoroughbred horse racing as a hot walker, groom, asst. trainer, broodmare & foaling man. I have been a manufacturing engineer and quality assurance manager, I have been a cook…
