I just wanted to extend an invitation to all of you to attend the First Annual New England Orchid Celebration on Saturday, June 26, at Metalwerx, 50 Guinan St., Waltham, Massachusetts. This will be a relaxing, educational and fun event, open to anyone with a passion for jewelry-making. Organizers Suzanne Wade and Karen Christians will host a day of jewelry demonstrations, followed by cocktails and BBQ. Orchid is an online moderated discussion group with over 5,000 members, and is part of the Ganoksin Project, the world’s largest content provider on the Internet for jewelers. The Orchid celebration will bring together discussion group participants from throughout the Northeast with Ganoksin Project founder Dr. Hanuman Aspler for a day of education and networking.
The day begins at 9 a.m. with a continental breakfast. Demonstrations will start at 10AM. The schedule for the full-day event is as follows:9 am - Continental Breakfast 10 am - Demo - Orchid Wax Carving with Sumner Silverman 11 am - Demo - Hot Forge Twisting with Munya Upin 12 pm - Demo- Flex Shaft Goodies with Rich Bohr, 3M Company 1 pm - Lunch 2 pm - Demo- Casting Techniques with Dan Grandi, Racecar Jewelry Company 3 pm - Demo- Crocheting in Gold with Michael David Sturlin 4 pm - Demo- Hammer-setter Stone Setting Techniques with Joel Schwab 5 pm - Cocktails 6 pm - BBQ - Jake and Earls 8-10 pm - Hang out in the Metalwerx Bamboo Garden and talk
We are also currently accepting donations for the Silent Auction that will be held in conjunction with the event. For the Silent Auction, we are especially seeking donations of tools, equipment, and jewelry-making supplies. Perhaps you have a strand of high-quality beads or pearls that no longer fits with your look; an order of materials, such as Keum-boo foil or PMC, for a technique you're not as excited about as you once were; or some loose gemstones that just no longer hold any appeal for you. Here's a great opportunity to clear out your safe of those odds-and-ends, and help support Orchid at the same time! For more information about the Silent Auction, please vist
