The Author hard at Work!

This is an ongoing project of mine that involves travelling around the world and collecting stories and photos of the gem cutting trade. It’s probably a long term project because it involves travelling around Europe, Asia, India, and the US and that’s not cheap. It’s off to a good start though. Stay tuned for more information.

I have started a website to support my research: www.facetinghistory.com
