GEM & MINERAL SHOWS + EVENTS OF INTEREST

------------------------------------------

Our next meeting is.

September 20, 2017

7:00 pm

Dittus Hall, Redwood Terrace, 710 West 13th Avenue, Escondido

 

 

 

 

 

Palomar Gem and Mineral Club is back up and running!

Regular open shop classes are running again. Our general meeting is coming up.

During our dark month of August, we had two special classes: Bob Johnson’s annual faceting bootcamp and a special Chase and Repousse class.

You’ll notice that the shop is nice and clean (at least for the next few days!). Thanks to all who worked so hard and sacrificed their Saturdays (and in Cheryl’s case- even their carpet cleaner!) so that our shop is more enjoyable!

Image result for image turquoise stone jewelryEric will be telling us about the different American varieties of turquoise, where they come from, and the changing trends in which varieties are most popular. He’ll have lots of samples we can study and work out where they came from.

 

 

 

The September meeting is also our annual PIE NIGHT! So bake up your purtiest pie and bring it along!

PIE night, Barbara, not PI!

 

So grab your pie and come join us for an fun and exciting evening.
