Hello! I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself...

I'm from just outside of Charlotte, NC and got into cutting gemstones after taking the family "mining" at some of those places in the NC mountains where they give you a bucket of dirt that has been salted with stones to sluice through. It just kind of grew from there.

I've been cutting stones for about 2 years now and I'm starting to get into casting jewelry as well these days. I'm looking forward to exchanging info and ideas with everyone here!
