We had a very enjoyable and lively meeting with members catching up with friends and news following the August break.
Jason Middleton along to talk about Gem Stones. He spoke about various gems, and showed examples of what they were made of, passing round samples of stone for us to handle. His depth of knowledge and explanation of the Gems gave us all a new interest in our own jewellery and to perhaps think deeply and explore where it originated from. He recommended great care be taken of all pieces of jewellery that you have being mindful of how it was found, by whom, and how it was mined. He also brought along a wonderful display of original jewellery for the members to handle and purchase. He donated a beautiful pair of pearl earrings for our raffle prize. Many thanks to Jason for a great evening.
As shown below another delicious lunch! – this month at the George and Dragon in Elsworth enjoyed by all.
