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!

Wire wrapped ring made by Pat Brown at a prior Gem Section meeting

Date: March 26, 2018
Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Pat Brown
Topic: Wire Wrapping
Location: GMS Building

If you missed the February meeting you missed one of our own members - Wendy Zhang - talk to us about carving. She brought two carving machines to the meeting, and gave us an interesting talk and demonstration on carving with the machines. She even let us try our hand at carving with the machines, if we had a soft stone (hardness under 3). A big thanks goes to Wendy for this very informative meeting.

In March Pat Brown will be with us and will show us how she makes wire wrapped jewelry. The last time she was here, she demonstrated making a pendant. I can’t remember if we decided on a bracelet or ear rings for this month's demo. Either way, we are in for an informative evening. Pat is a very talented artist and excellent teacher, so I hope everyone can attend this meeting.

As usual, we will fold, address and stamp next month’s T&T before the Gem section meeting starts.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
