I am a lapidary artist and bench jeweler with over 30 years experience cutting stones. In addition I create my own sterling silver or gold settings. I am certified in Gemstone Identification by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). I was also a 2005 award recipient of the US Faceters Guild Single Stone Competition.
Gem grade crystals are precision cut on a diamond cutting wheel using the Meet Point technique. Other semi-precious stones are hand cut as cabochons on other diamond cutting wheels. Silver and gold metals are cut to fit each piece uniquely and then spot welded with specialized bench jewellers tools.
