The countdown is well under way. If you haven’t marked the date yet, do so. You wouldn’t want to miss our show this year:
[waiting name=”Gem Show”]
Our annual show is scheduled for the Saturday 2nd March (8.30am – 4pm) and Sunday 3rd March (8.30am – 3pm). Bracken Ridge State High school is kindly leaving their premises to us (at Barfoot St, Bracken Ridge)
There will be gem traders, jewellery making tools, gems (faceted and roughs), minerals (specimens, cabbed & carved stones and rough material) as well as a wide variety of opals and jewellery.
The popular fossicking area for kids will be there and no one is too old to try their hand.
Our kitchen fairies are working hard at supplying you with food (burger, sausages, sandwiches and cakes).
The theme this year revolves around imitates and man-made /synthetic gems and minerals. We are working on a display to allow you to look at samples of synthetics and the natural stones.
The items submitted for the Presidents challenges in faceting, cabbing and jewellery making will be on display.
