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 a long term project because it involves traveling around Europe, Asia, India, and the US and there is a LOT of research to do!. It’s off to a good start though.

Stay tuned for more information.
