How I do what I do…

Large pink tourmaline cushion

If you are one of my Facebook fans (you can find my page here) you have seen a lot of my work in progress or before and after photos. But I am sure you can imagine it takes a lot more steps than I can show on those very short updates and limited images. To answer this burning question of how I do my work my brother helped me make this little video a couple of years ago. You can see all the various stages of the repair of a pink tourmaline. It is a little under 10 minutes long and I hope this will give you a nice little view into my work.

You can like it and share it with your gem loving friends!

Tell me what you think or if you have any questions in the comments bellow 🙂 I am always happy to hear back from you!

“Handmade Market” de Canberra

Bonjour à toutes et à tous !

Cela fait un petit moment que je n’ai pas écris d’article pour mon blog mais si vous me suivez sur Facebook vous avez pu voir un bon nombre de réparations de pierres fines et précieuse faits récemment dans mon atelier. Quelques articles vont suivre à ce sujet, mais en attendant, voici un autre petit film de mon stand au “Handmade Market” de Canberra (en septembre) que j’ai ajouté sur ma chaîne vidéo sur YouTube.

Voici une vidéo montrant les différentes étapes de la réparation d’une tourmaline rose dont l’un des angles a été cassé. Moins grande que la photo ajoutée récemment, mais vous pouvez voir toute l’action !

Tourmaline repair video

This video was shot in my workshop in Sydney. It shows all the steps I took to repair a badly chipped pink tourmaline. Not quite as big as the previous pink tourmaline I cleaned up but you get all the action!
