Idea for Metals Club Tool Budget

Buy a light tent for photographing work! I have info and will try to remember to bring it on Monday. This could be a huge draw for new members and perhaps even from outside the M & J/IC programs.

Craft Bastards

Tagging in to this...we are meeting in CA 2006 at 10 am on Sunday, driving to Greenbelt metro station, taking that to Crafty Bastards, and returning to Towson by 5pm so people can sork in the studio. COME!

Crafty Bastards Show in D.C. Sunday Sept 30. Megan Auman has a booth, and our awesome alums: Juliet, and Annie . I think it would be great to get a group of people together to go through the show. Anyone interested??

Recycled Jewelry Event

I would really like to host the Recycled Jewelry Event (that they did in Richmond) next semester.
I would like to start the planning now so that we could advertise it at the various sales and events that we host. If we are all feel strapped for time perhaps this is something that an alum could organize for us (like Liz Matthews).

one a day challenge

Want to make a lot of work for the holiday sale? Start planning now!

Challenge yourself to make one item for the sale each day you are in the studio. Keep it simple - basic earrings, rings, pendants. Use skills you're already using for class - Jewelry 2 - roll print silver sheet for some simple pendants - Jewelry 1 - wire makes great earrings. You get the idea.

Need a little inspiration?
