Show & Tell

The May 7th program portion of our meeting will include Show & Tell.  Bring your whatsits, your leverites, your FLRs (funny-looking-rocks), or your fancy and fabulous pieces.  With so many brains on hand, we’re sure any questions will be answered!

Also, from 11am-1pm the First Annual Snail Crawl will be held for families of Pebble Pups (members under 18 years of age).  Contact Becky for more information.

2016 January Program: Gemstone Trees

Hello members!  The program following the club meeting on January 10th will be about making gemstone trees.  You’ve probably seen them around – eBay, Amazon, etsy – they’re all the rage.  Becky will provide take-home printed directions, gemstones (rose quartz, lapis lazuli, amethyst, malachite, and more) and wires enough to build a small tree (like the one above).  She has a limited number of needle-nose pliers however, so if you have some lying around, please bring them too!  Once you have the basics, no doubt your trees will grow and grow.
