Jerry Hughes has considered himself a lapidary since the age of ten, when his grandfather helped him shape his first cabochon on the ranch in Montana. He’s never lost his love for, and fascination with, gemstones. He trained as a faceter in the 1980’s, and currently teaches faceting to both youngsters and adults. Starting Delta One Lapidary in 2001 in Waldport, Oregon, has given him the opportunity to share his knowledge with students and adults alike.
Juli Dahl found out early in life that her favorite stone, the garnet, was also her birthstone. After she married Jerry, she joined the Oregon Coast Agate Club, at first going along just to meet new people. She soon found that the lapidary arts held a fascination for her, too. Now she’s learned enough to share her knowledge confidently with students who come in to the store, and anyone else who asks. She teaches cabocon cutting for a small fee to adults. She’s also learned to design and make jewelry, which can also be found on the Delta One website.
