  [I was able to view a large selection of their jewelry recently and it

  piercing placement. 11/95]

  [I called in response to a magazine advertisement. I spoke to a man
who
   identified himself as the owner. When I inquired as to the grade of
   steel they used, I was told, "That's none of your business. You could
   be my competition looking for industry secrets."  When I responded
that
   I was asking as a concerned piercer, I was rudely interrupted, "This 

   conversation is over." I was denied a catalog. 6/95]
