Celebrate all the moms by giving the gift of life! Ame here, Lab Coordinator. As many of you know, my mom passed into the great beyond a few years ago so I can't take her out for a swanky Mother's Day brunch. But instead of having a sad day missing her, I'm donating blood in her honor. Did you know that one donation can save several lives? The process is almost completely painless (2 tiny micro-second needle sticks), the people are super friendly, it's really fast and they always have great snacks. Come donate with us on Sunday and you'll get the satisfaction of knowing that you're fulfilling a life-saving, urgent need in our community. Walk-ins are welcome or, for optimum speediness, you can reserve a spot by calling 1-800-469-7322 or you can make an online appointment.
We're not a gang, we're a Club! Anneville Jewelry Club is a free, informal group of metalsmiths and makers. No dues, no meetings, no malarky, we just get together to learn, work, make friends and have fun.
Anneville Jewelry Lab offers low cost hourly bench rentals in our Open Lab throughout the week. We’re located in sunny San Diego’s Liberty Station with abundant free parking, artisan coffee and a wide array of food options. In addition to the Anneville Jewelry Club we offer ongoing jewelry/metal arts classes from beginner basics to advanced techniques with new classes starting all the time. See what the Club is up to lately on Instagram @annevillejewelrylab.
Interested in joining? Just sign up at Anneville Jewelry Lab (yes, it's a real bulletin board and you sign up on paper with a pen). We'll add you to our mailing list and when you see an event you want to attend, just come on down.
Did you know that we have the 14th century English poet Chaucer (author of the Canterbury Tales) to thank for making Valentine's Day a romantic holiday? Since then it has become an occasion to express love with presents and cards. If you're looking for a unique gift, how about skipping the flowers and giving your crafty loved one something they'll really enjoy - a gift certificate to the new Anneville Jewelry Lab? At our February FNL we'll be offering discounted Lab gift certificates and selected Anneville Studio pendants and rings - and the first 5 customers get a FREE heart-shaped box of chocolates (or a cute bag, if you're not the chocolate type). We'll also have music, nibbles and sips so stop by to see Anne's newest creations and help us celebrate Saint Valentinus! Get directions.
As we close out 2018 we want to wish you and your family a very merry Solstice, a merry Christmas, a happy Kwanzaa and a joyous New Year. From England to Japan to a whole new business endeavor, 2018 has been a whirlwind. We hope that the holidays bring you peaceful joy and that you share our excitement for the coming year. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays.
Educator, metalsmith, jeweler, maker of custom mokume gane jewelry and wedding rings.
