This week I attended Hearts on Fire University and was privileged to take a diamond cutting class taught by Brian McHardy. Here's a couple pics of me at the wheel.

That fellow demonstrating diamond cutting does not look like Brian, who does not wear glasses or a full beard. He has had a goatee sometimes. Brian has brown/gray hair like in this video.

It could be his brother who did wear glasses and had black hair.

Yes, that's me. Brian was just outside of the shot. I don't plan to pursue cutting but understanding the process is beneficial to my job.
