As you can see in all the articles in the Gem-cutting category of my blog I do a lot of cutting from rough, repairs and some carving right here in my workshop. If you would like to know if some gemstones you have can be cut, recut or improved, pearls to drill… please contact me to arrange an appointment. (no obligations and no charge)
Design consultations for jewellers / designers are available for a fee, please contact me to discuss your project.
In this week’s Woman’s Day (March 4 ) you will see a little feature on page 87 titled: “Shop the Markets… from your lounge” and will see one of my Manu Scriptum cuff! I am so thrilled, it is the first time I am in a national magazine 🙂
After years of looking and collecting little stones and pebbles wherever I go I stoped for a moment to reflect on this habit.
As a gemmologist and gem cutter I have an obvious attraction to gemstones. As an artist I always find myself looking at textures and colours wherever I am. As I combine the two together I find myself fascinated by the fact that a geologist will be able to tell you the history of a particular stone: what it is made off, how it was formed and how it got to the place you found it. On the other hand a more romantic person will tell you the story of a beautiful sunset and how the stone was chosen and carefully kept as a precious reminder of that moment.
Wether you are more interested in the scientific part or the artistic one or even a bit of both like me my question to you is what does this little stone tell you?
