Hubert Heldner
"The secrecy in the gem and jewelry business is exactly the reason why I started to teach. It is very hard to learn if nobody is willing to share. If something is missing you need to become ( or turn yourself into ) what is missing. One day you will teach in your own country and make all the difference. Sharing and the concept of paying it forward is a joyful way into a different future."
You are welcome to join us.
