Hello GO members,
I'm new to faceting. In fact, I just faceted my first stone. I didn't see a category to introduce myself so I hope this is OK. I was wondering if there are any facetors in my area. I would love to meet someone near by to talk stones and perhaps see some in person. I live in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan near Marquette. I have asked around without success. One of the jewelers in the area said there is one guy but he wouldn't give me his name or pass on my info. Here is my first stone. It's a Namanga garnet that came with the Raytech I purchased. I can tell you that I am already hooked.
Angela

Welcome.

I would say drop down and see me, but the tript Dallas is probably to much. :D

This web page has several MI clubs listed. Mabe you can find one that is close that has a group the facets.

Good luck, and I look forward to more of your gems.
