This is a trove of information that will save you time and money, and make your faceting faster and more productive, not to mention more comfortable and fun. I'm excited to finally be getting this material out to the community and I hope you enjoy it.



ONLY 2 SEATS LEFT IN THE SPRING BASIC ACADEMY!

There are ONLY TWO SEATS LEFT in the Spring BASIC Training Academy. We've got a great international mix of students that will create great networking opportunities.

We upgrade and adjust the event EVERY time to keep it fresh and to address student requests directly. This time, we have an
exciting extended calendar that's going to have us going even deeper than before in building the foundational skills to take your faceting where you want to go.

Details of the May, 2015 BASIC event are available here.

Although there are still several weeks before the event, the remaining seats will fill very quickly, and serious students will need to use that lead-time to gather equipment and supplies and plan their travel.

To join this fun, intense, training - with great people from around the country and around the world - Go to the Academy enrollment page NOW and reserve one of the five seats still left!

I'm looking forward to seeing you here!

Reserve My Seat!



ADVANCED REPAIR CLASS IS OPEN!

You asked - and we're delivering. You requested deeper detailed training for gemstone repair!

Immediately following the BASIC Academy event (ending May 8), I'm offering a two-day intensive gemstone repair course - which will include a first-time-ever instruction on using concave facets to recover from conchoidal chips.

I'm looking forward to seeing graduates from BASIC taking their skills even higher in this one!

THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE IS OPEN!

And, it is GREAT.

For a couple of years, I've taught a basic gemstone photography course that shared the gear and techniques I use to quickly and efficiently get the photos you've seen on the Gemstone Artist web site.

THE JEWELRY PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE I'M MOST EXCITED ABOUT is this one:

This course bundle has THIRTY TWO MODULES, including specific training on

  • equipment selection
  • DIY and inexpensive equipment and setup
  • how to maximize your inexpensive camera
  • using both white and black glossy backgrounds
  • detailed post production, with practice files


Alex has already saved me HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS PERSONALLY with the information in these courses. The value is INSANE on this high-value training.
