FACETING ARTICLES, DESIGNS, & PICTURES
Beginning faceters are often amazed at the beauty of their first few gemstones,
their first tries at taking a rough piece of one of the gem minerals and placing many
flat facets around its surface. The sparkling stones always draw many compliments
from family members and friends.
At first try the author took a round glass marble, the kind that children play with,
and experimented with his faceting machine, laps, polishing powders, and accessories
to see what he could do and what he should not do to be successful. Not having had
any lessons or help from other faceters at the start, the author purchased any books
that he found available which had anything to do with faceting. This was in the
1970's a time when there was not much available in the way of faceting machines, a
time when those faceters who did find out what worked well for them kept their
success secret. There was not much sharing of information.
The author has written many articles having to do with faceting gemstones, and has
donated the articles to various rock and gem clubs for use in their newsletters.
Some were used in magazines that supported interests of the gem faceting hobby.
The author has a wall full of trophies that he has won when competing with faceters
from around the world.
The purpose of presenting this book is to offer many pages of information that are
guaranteed to help beginning faceters, intermediate faceters who have methods and
equipment questions that they would like answered, and faceters who want to
improve their skill to the level of becoming a world class faceter.
FACETING ARTICLES, DESIGNS, & PICTURES includes many of the authors
faceting articles that are meant to inform and improve faceting success for any
faceter. There are many of the authors cut design patterns that add interest to the
articles. Lastly, there are colored pictures that also add to the articles by showing
what the results were when the author made proof cuts of his designs.
