Website Rules and Code of Conduct
At the age of 13, I began an apprenticeship under a master cutter who did all of the repair work for a national chain of jewelry stores. Under his guidance, I learned the art and science of faceting. My mentor told me that the key to being successful was in cutting precision stones, so I adopted this as my focus to making brighter gemstones.
In 2010, I began cutting full time. I have been cutting full time since.
Throughout my apprenticeship I practiced cutting on feldspar, sometimes even the occasional sunstone with schiller. All varieties of feldspar cut quickly and polish to a bright finish, usually without any trouble. Quick cutting, brilliant polish, variety of colors, and ease of making a fantastic gemstone are the reasons sunstone are so enjoyable to cut. Without complications found in so many stones, cutting sunstone is so much fun. With the variety of colors and shiller in sunstone, there are so many different looks to this gemstone.
