Free Beginners' Faceting Designs Ebook
« on: August 24, 2022, 02:15:15 PM »
Many thanks go to Andrew Brown Faceting Design https://facetingdesigns.com/ and Mark Oros from Hashnu Stones https://www.hashnustones.com for together making the fantastic collection of 12 faceting stone designs for beginners available free to everyone! I have seen the green cut gem on the front cover in the flesh, Frost Star Hex, it looks awesome, as are all the others.

It's a fabulous resource and if you're like me, love a book, it's so affordable to purchase the book itself!Good grief, under $10 Aussie dollars.... Makky, what were you thinking!  ;)
It's extremely generous of you and Mark for making this available to all sizes of purse strings, especially when one is just starting out.
Well done guys!  beers

Keep em comin!!!

Thanks Mehoose and RC. It seems to be a bit more expensive from the Australian printer, the cost is pretty much printing cost + Amazons fees. Hopefully the book will help some beginners enjoy the hobby.

I do love hard copies, in the hand, flip the pages...makes it so real!  :D My book arrived today and I love the full page after each design for notes. Plenty of space for material cut, laps used, polish used, start/finish weight and room for short notes.I'd probably just use a piece of paper to note the tiers/facets as they're cut to save room for the good info.It's also handy because my computer is nowhere near my machine.  ;D
Thank you again, Makky and Mark(does he come in here?) for creating this resource for all to benefit from.
Keep em comin!!!

I hope you all enjoy the designs :)
@mehoose "does he come in here?" He knows about this forum but I think Instagram keeps him pretty busy.

Thanks for the free diagrams. I'm fairly new to faceting so this will come in handy.
