  • I started gem faceting in 2006, and have been lucky enough to have some of the best in the business as guides and mentors.  As a member of the U.S. Faceters Guild, and past-president of the Texas Faceters' Guild, the learning curve keeps on going.  I now share my skill demonstrating faceting and giving talks about faceting and our topaz.
  • Mason is a special place.  As well as being the home of Texas topaz, it has historically had a gem faceter.  Since the '60's, there has been a "cutter" in this little town, turning clear, rounded topaz into beautiful gems.  Gem faceters are relatively rare, and for a small town to have a number of faceters over the years is impressive.  I am the fourth cutter in Mason, but the first that is a professional jeweler.  My jewelry training and experience makes it possible for me to share our beautiful gems with you.
