December Meeting Notes
Another month, another meeting!! This one was a good one. Lots of discussion about everything from COVID to jewelry, to the holidays and planning for the future.
We have scheduled a few more meetings, virtual I’m sure:
Same time, 1pm on Sundays. Maybe, just maybe, we will be able to meet in person in May???? It’s a goal, right?!
We talked about where to buy metal clay. I’m sure there are more. I just can’t remember others. These are the few we mentioned:
Metal Clay Supply
Fire Mountain Gems
AMCAW’s next virtual meeting is all about photography if anyone is interested. There are other good videos. Pam East did a great tutorial on CraftCast. There are also some on YouTube using a phone and a regular DSL camera with or without a lightbox.
Sara talked about the book she and Bevlynn are working on for Lis-el’s family. She is still collecting pages so please, think about putting something together. We sent out a reminder email not too long ago. It doesn’t have to be anything complex, just a few words, something that the family can look at from time to time and know how much she meant to all of us. The guild was her pride and joy; it was an honor for me to be part of it. Her family would probably love to hear that.
We had some great pieces for show & tell. We are such a talented group and it’s wonderful to see that some of us are making and selling pieces. I will post the pictures in the blog.
From the top left to bottom right: Josh Berins prong setting non-firable stone; Sara Brown, commission pieces; Sara pendant; Eve Earrings using Aura 22 and her handmade earwires; John Berins leaf pendant.
Keep in mind too that we have no time constraints to post any memories, pictures or stories about Lis-el. If you have something; email it to me and I will add it to the website.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and happy new year’s celebration.
Thanks and stay safe . . . keep wearing your masks!!
May you all find peace, joy and loving kindness in the new year.
