When I started making jewellery I
found out that I needed the gemstones which completed my designs. I
didn't want to depend on the gemstones in the market. Therefore I
learned faceting and I bought my Facetron.
You can see the machine

Also I learned stone cutting and faceting in the workshop of
Hans G. Gordner and gem carving in Hans Ulrich
Paulys workshop in Idar-Oberstein.
