An avid collector for about thirty years, Christiane Morin has acquired, in the course of her many travels, a large number of gemstones from the various countries she has visited. Noticing the poor quality of their cut, she began learning lapidary art with Yves St-Pierre and benefited from the wise advice of the late Stephen Kotlowski, master lapidary. For more than ten years now, she has been cutting stones professionally for her international clientele and renowned private collections.
