The rarest of the gemstones (I am not counting red beryl-just stones that can be located somewhat easily). This version of Aluminum Oxide is quite amazing. Giving a lecture on the history and characteristics in class this week.
I am giving a talk on 3D Printing and the future of Jewelry on campus today in the SSC building. I am speaking at 12:30 but the event is from 12 – 3pm and is hosted by Phi Theta Kappa. Please join us if you can!
Students worked hard and did a great job at our jewelry sale this year. We will have the sale every year the week before Thanksgiving. Former students of the guild are welcome to join the guild and sell a line of interesting jewelry!
So proud of my students as they try their hand at making jewelry to sell. Most of the students are beginners and have worked hard to learn the skills they have in class! Way to go and hope people show up to buy!
So I am thinking of being a maker of flatware. All of the rules that used to tell you how many courses and what you would be served at the dinner. I guess I love secret signs that you have to figure out. My goal is not to re-invent but to play with something that we use everyday (you tell me when a day has gone by when you didn’t use a spoon).
The Spoon, from the Anglo-Saxon term spon, meaning ”to chip” or “wood chip” was the first eating utensil. The spoon is the safest, most comfortable member of the cutlery set. It is the easiest implement to use – babies start with spoons- and the one with the most versatility, which is the reason why its employment is constantly being restricted (earlier eating habits used them as knives and often in cases where we use forks today)
