    I like that it is an adabtable course, that flexibility will allow for concurrent consumption of new content as it comes about. I still can't believe it was only a year in the making. It really kept my attention and I actually wanted to keep going forward. Very well done, congrats to you all!

    Pattye- I keep coming across these tapes. This time while digging through my gemology book box purging duplicate books and I thought of our old conversation here. I was tempted to pop them in my converter to play for nostalgia (Maybe this weekend)

    Congratulations, Iím taking the same course in London, UK early next year, a pearl friend with vast experience has earned me that I may feel like I learn nothing new apart from the lab day, I already hold the CPAA diploma and apparently thatís more detailed than the GIA pearl diploma. The lab day sounds so exciting!

    Did they ever redo the stringing video? I remember taking the GIA Pearls course and the Stringing and Knotting course years ago. The instructor was using tweezers, if I remember right.

    Well I already expressed my opinion on the old GIA pearl course, so I won't rehash that.
    The CPAA class was very interesting, even non pearl people have commented on it or expressed interest in taking it.
    But the stringing course was discontinued ages ago, and yes in the video tweezers were used along with early 80's hair styles.
    (Pattye- I did watch them again, it was painful LOL)

    My hair is always big no matter what I do, so it was a useful decade! Ha.
