      Hello, I’m a new member and felt it appropriate to introduce and say a bit about myself.

      I’m a prior service member and engineer living in Murrells Inlet, SC. I’ve made jewelry as a hobby following an early retirement about 8 years ago. Since then, the hobby has grown into more complicated designs, casting my own components and making cabochons. Increasingly, the readily available gemstones didn’t fully meet my needs, and from the beginning there was always a strong desire to facet my own anyway. So, after much research, I ordered a faceting machine last week.

      I’m looking forward to meeting and learning from other members in the guild, and finding a few good sources for classes, materials and accessories. I’m aware of the William Holland School, and the Franklin, NC show because we have a getaway cabin just 40 miles from either place, but have never attended either. So finding more about these is another goal. Other than that, Tom Herbst book has been very informative, along with google searches and some better You-Tube videos. Any advice and recommendations are greatly appreciated.

      Richard B.

      Hope this works,

      I am having trouble accessing parts of the site as I keep getting a “You do not have permission to view this” message but my account shows I am registered and paid and all that. Sorry to derail this thread, I was able to access it via the side-bar however when I use the drag-down menu at the top I get the no permission message.

      I used the “about us” to send a message but have not received a response. Hoping a mod or admin or someone can help me out.

      Once again, sorry to use this thread as a place to ask but I am also a new member and am having trouble with the site.

      Thank you for your time.

      Edit: weird that this worked.

      Hey Richard,

      Glad to meet you. I am in the Greater Nashville area, and I will be attending the William Holland School in just a few months. If you have not registered for classes there, I will let you know how it is. I have a 5th wheel, so I will be taking that for the week and staying on-site.
