    Hi, Dale.

    Your video tips are most valuable as I embark on the journey of jewelry making. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share them with me and others.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Dale as usual I have been learning so much from you. I just have to remember all this information. Someday all this will become second nature.

    Thank you again

    Learn something new everyday! Did not know that the planes of a cut gemstone had names. They are so logical. Should be easy to remember. Thanks, Dale
