Hi Orchidians,

Just want to say how much I enjoyed taking classes from Marilynn
Nicholson. She’s a terrific teacher and has unique ways of setting
stones and has some fascinating mechanisms. She was eager to share
her knowledge when I attended her classes. The setting for her
is beautiful Taos, New Mexico.

This is simply a testimonial. I have not been nor will be compensated
in any way for this. Just wanted to pass along my experience with a
wonderful teacher.
