About this cutter: Chris & Tae Calentine have been "rock and jewelry" enthusiasts for many years. Several years ago they began Calentine-by-Design. Chris' work is predominantly 'freeform' cabochons in semi-precious stones, mounted with precious metal wire.  Chris will many times simply cut a slab, tap it with a hammer to break, and use the pieces in the shape that they break in. Tae produces all the hand beading for the pendants, bracelets, necklaces etc. Their next project will be to start mounting faceted stones. Please visit their web site for more information and show listings etc.

About this cutter: I am self-taught and have been faceting for 7 years. As a child, I had a small mineral collection. As an adult, my job consists of working in a laboratory with gravel and limestone on a daily basis. Of course, the next step in the progression is to facet a beautiful gemstone from a pretty rock. It's just a hobby for me that turned into something more. I am proud of being part of the faceting community and have met many wonderful people along the way.

About this cutter: I've been faceting gemstones since 1978. I cut all stone types, but prefer tourmalines, garnets, spinels, and corundums. Not to be stuck in a rut, I've been cutting more exotic species recently, like hackmanite, basnaesite, and actinolite (collector's stones). When cutting, my goal is to produce the finest stone possible from the rough at hand. Perfect polish, perfect meets; these are starting points for every stone cut. What ever the need; special treatment for difficult and problematic stones, attention to detail or special design for that special stone; these are all things I strive to provide for my clients.
