Stone Setting

Well the last week has been so much fun, I never thought learning could be such a blast! Over the last week we have been learning many stone setting techniques - flush, gypsy, prong and bead setting have all been covered - the most difficult being prong and bead - its a lot harder than it looks to raise those little beads up properly, and requires quite a bit of muscle! - Blaine insists on going over the story of the graver going though his hand - that makes me nervous - but at least makes me keep my hands well out of the way! I still can't believe we are going this far in week 3, but man what a great time we are having, this place certainly isn't short of laughs!

The funniest part of today was probably the "meat puppet episode" Blaine had cut his finger earlier in the week and superglued it back together - but on the high magnification TV where we see everything, it looked like it kept opening up and "talking". After several minutes of Blaine playing "meat puppet" with his finger - Adam was about ready to give back his lunch!
