The Aztecs Eye and Lions Eye faceting designs.
« on: December 07, 2018, 05:01:11 PM »
Hi everyone, probably a long shot. Does anyone know where I can get hold of the "Aztecs Eye" and "The Lions Eye" design by Jeff Graham?  At some point there where a series of JEFF GRAHAM FACETING DESIGN BOOKLETS that could be purchased ( Grams Designs). Sadly he has passed away and I have no idea how to get hold of this series. He is one of my favourite designers. Can anybody help? Regards Cliff

Thanks Leah, but I've seen these diagrams but they are son specific enough with the design angles. I think all Jeff Graham's books are out of print. Regards Cliff

I bought my books from Rock Peddler in 2016 I think, they have a new site now.
https://www.rockpeddler.com/product-category/instructional-materials/

As far as what books to pick up for those designs, it's Addition #5 and #12, as shown on the archive Gary Katochvil has provided.
http://www.jewelcutter.com/graham/designs/

The only book not listed on the archive is #15, which has some interesting designs but is mostly squares and rectangles.

I am pleased to say that Jeff Grahams design are still available and I've ordered a couple of volumes through the "Rock Peddler" Thanks to those who helped out.
