This is really a blog for lovers of gemstones & jewellery, recently I joined my local lapidary club being Frankston lapidary. I was astonished at the facilities not to say the great bunch of people that I met there on my 1st day/night .
Helpful pro/amatuers always wanting to help you to create your own piece of jewellery or hints and advice on cutting your own gem. This club in particular prides itself with a professional jeweller on board who helps everyone.
There are cab machines, facet machines, tumblers, rumblers, saws, benches polishers etc etc.
Guys & Gals creating there own chains in sterling with a helper teaching them to weave.
I sat back and observed this facility and thought what a great thing to be involved with , and really was a little unhappy I had not joined earlier in life.
Asking a mate that introduced me to the club " Are all clubs like this one "? "Yep some even bigger "!
Gemmologists that can help with identification of a find at a local dig or escursion, mineral books and a huge library all about gems locations jewellery making an absolute treasure trove.
Then the outings "My God", I thought this just gets better each day.
