Mark’s Mastery

Radiant Rectangle faceting design using an OMNI-type preform. This is an intermediate to advanced level faceting design, so you’ll want very solid basic skills before tackling it.

If you do have strong basic skills, while cutting this design you’ll learn about OMNI architecture, sequencing strategies, using temporary guide facets, and much more.

This design was created on request for Demantoid Garnet for my long-time friend and Faceting Academy Graduate Mark Stephan – for whom it was named: “Mark’s Mastery”. The “mastery” part of the name is meant to suggest the mastery skills you’ll build while cutting it.
