Male, Age 56 years young, spoken for!. Born eight minutes before midnight on the full moon. Ouch!!! Why do I love rocks? Because they're the only things that I can get into an argument with and never win, yet they're still "speaking to me"! I plead the "fifth" on everything else!!! I have been cutting cabochons and hand- fabricating jewelry in sterling and 14K for 17 years. I've chosen the business name "Wing'n'It CDJ" since it's my approach to stone cutting, metal working and my "MO" to life in general. I find that letting the stones dictate to me what they want to be, and following that by letting the finished cabochons dictate what the settings will be produces the best final product. "Planning ahead" and trying to force a piece to be what it doesn't want to be rarely, if ever, works to my satisfaction. It's not easy being a Virgo with a Pisces moon! My partner, Jane Furth (Libellule CDJ), finds the same to be true in her beadwork and is also becoming an excellent stone cutter and silversmith. She has been beading for 5 years in glass, crystal, pearls, semi-precious stones, gold and silver and has been learning the stone cutting and silversmithing trade for about 3 years. My favorite stones? Phenomenal ones. Janes' favorite stones? She's the "Jasper Lady"!; notnek2.tripod.com Wing'n'It CDJ and Libelulle CDJ
