Gem SwapFebruary 17, 2014 • 6:12 pm No Comments
Do you have lovely old stones that you know you will never set? Or a random strand of beads that you know you won’t ever use, but still find beautiful? Most jewelers have pieces in their inventory that they know they won’t work with, even though the material is good. So why don’t we swap?
Brooklyn Metal Works invites all of our members and the members of the New Jersey Metal Arts Guild for this one day special event.
If you would like to freshen your inventory and give your old stock new life, please join us. Bring whatever you are interested in trading – cabochons, faceted stones, beads, mineral specimens, and alternative materials too. There is no commitment to trade, you can come just to learn more about gemstones.
We will be discussing gems and minerals, learning about gem buying practices, and how to source gemstones among other topics. Whether a gemstone novice or professional jeweler, this event offers something for everyone. All current members of BKMW and NJMAG are welcome.
