Gem Section Meets
Last Monday Every Month

Ah, the jewels of the rockhounding world. Gems come in many different forms, but one thing is usually certain -- someone took something normal and transformed it into something spectacular!

Join us at Gem Section to see rocks when they are all dressed up and even dress up a few yourself!

Gem Section Message

Date: Monday, September 30, 2019
Time: 7:30 pm
Topic: Dragon Eye Wirewrapping
Location: GMS Building

A big thanks goes to Lori for showing us how to make a Dragon Eye. This is a glass cab shaped “gem” from Dollar Tree that is painted with nail polish and then scratches are etched into the polish to make it look like an eye. Lori got the idea from artist Yvonne Williams. If you search YouTube, you will see several videos of her creating her version of a Dragon Eye.

This month Charles Carter along with Diane’s help will show us how to wire wrap our “Dragon Eyes” and make them into pieces of jewelry. If you have wire tools, bring them and join us for the wire bending.

In October, the Gem Section is hosting the Juniors Section. We will be making Beads of Courage beads. This will be on Sunday October 27, so we will not meet on our usual last Monday of the month.

As usual, we will start the evening by folding; addressing, and stamping the paper copies of the newsletter, and the meeting will start at 7:30PM. I hope to see everyone there.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
