During this 3 week class you will receive instructions on how to facet and free-form cut gemstones. You will cut yourself a series of faceted and free-form stones. The faceted gemstones will be in the brilliant cut. You will create a lasting value and some of the gemstones will be yours to keep at the end of the class.
A well trained and certified instructor will guide you to success. The safe operation of all machines will be addressed properly and a complete documentation will be handed out during class. We will provide a recognized certificate to each successful student.
A selection of gemstones are included in the class fee, but do not hesitate to bring your own rough stones.
