Small Business Saturday Specials
Escape Black Friday
Customer Appreciation Special - Join us for a special FREE day at the Lab
2-8pm on Friday Nov. 29th, 2019
Metal Arts Society of Southern California
At Anneville Jewelry Lab
February 8 & 9th, 2020 - 2 day intensive
Learn the traditional Japanese method of patterning mokume-gane; using a chisel to carve into the surface of blank mokume-gane to create rivers of pattern. After hammering the sheet back to flat, the unique patterns are locked into the metal forever. Participants will create patterned sheets the first day, then have the option of creating a finished pendant the second day, and/or creating their own mokume gane chisel.
Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to sip sangria, nibble on pan de muertos and Anne's fresh chile lime fruit and help us celebrate our first anniversary. We really appreciated the help of our fabulous volunteers Karen Rood, Yoko Rover, and Jean Franceschiello. We especially enjoyed the company of dear friends & students Guadelupe & Ray and Marie & Pat, both of whom stayed and visited, which was a real joy. The free 8pm raffle was quite a hit with Anne (student) winning Jeff Fulkerson's rhodocrosite cabochon, an adorable dad & daughter duo winning (with absolute delight) Julie's Monroe's enamel calavera pendant, Marie (of Marie & Pat!) winning Anne's calavera brooch and our own Carol Miles winning the grand prize of a free one month Gold membership to the lab ($150 value!).
