Vendors at the show will be selling custom and unique jewelry, gems and minerals including amethysts, emeralds, jade, pearls, fossils and more. Educational programs will include: exhibits by society members; demonstrations on how to convert a rough mineral into a piece of wearable or displayable jewelry or art; making cabochons from rough slabs; a step-by-step guide to the process of faceting; how-to instruction on the use of equipment; presentations on “knapping,” the ancient art of arrow-head making, and more. There will be a kids’ scavenger hunt on Saturday with prizes for the first 60 participants. Door prizes will be awarded hourly throughout the event.
