Live zoom classes based on the Jewellers' quick reference guide to working with gemstones

Live zoom classes for small groups of up to 4 students which provide an introduction to some of the gemmological information in the book, explaining why this information can be so useful for jewellers.  

Why a live zoom class?  I want to be able to share gem info with fellow gem lovers who are buying the book, wherever they live... and don't worry, they really are interactive classes!

Gemstone course

2 hour live zoom class - Gemstones for jewellers

For this class you will need a copy of Sally's book, a 10x loupe, a pair of tweezers (not reverse action!), 1 or 2 (or more...) gemstones, pen and paper and a cup of tea or coffee!

Are there 4 of you who would like to do a live zoom class but you can't make any of these times...

Please note that these classes are not designed to teach gemmology as a subject, they introduce jewellers to areas of gemmology that may be useful to them in their work. If you wish to study gemmology or learn how to identify gemstones, please email Sally and she will be able to assist in suggesting possible courses for you.
