Hi Barbra, ROM, Jason, etc.

Not sure if my old friends are still here but previously was TST, have been suffering for past several years with a stupid head tumor so have been out of touch. Still have tumor but it's being good lately so have slightly more energy than usual ;)

Anyway, I was someone that wanted to break into the industry back in 2005 and fancied designing and selling gems. I amassed an assortment of stones, fell in love with a very controversial one that gave me LOTS of "experience" then promptly got sick. So, I've got a "few" stones of one kind and about a few dozen others ;)

I have real world backgrounds in real estate, manufacturing, construction and music production, among other things. Currently out of the gem business for now due to health reasons and I've slowly given away various stones as gifts to friends and family over the years.

Which is why I am here basically (I mean, I have continued to stop by and lurk before), I have a friend whom I've given an aqua to and she wants to have it set. Could you folks direct me to a board member who does retail settings, etc.? I know about Pricescope, but wanted to try to find a board member first. Not sure about budget but judging from what she wears, she has the means to afford choices.

I'll try to participate whenever I can, glad to see the board is hopping!

Best,

G

Glad you remember me, you are always so kind.

Looking forward to participating more this year.
