Phillip- Thanks. You couldn’t have posted this at a better time. I
just saw this book for the first time last weekend and was wondering
where to get it.
I was teaching an "Intro to Professional Faceted Stone Setting"
workshop and one of my students said “Can you explain how to make
prong settings for odd shaped stones”. I said “Sure I can, I’ll show
you all how next week end if we have time”. I figured I’d do a bunch
of drawing on the chalk board and give them a few tricks. Then one of
my students said,"Hey I’ve got this book. by a guy named Mattiello."
She brought it in the next day and I thought, geez, I’ve got to add
this to my library for my students to look at. He even gave the same
tips I did when I gave them a general verbal out line of what to do
the previous day.
I love that I learn something new from my students every time I
