Gem Club's annual jewellery and lapidary show this Sunday

This Sunday 18th April, there's a rare opportunity to attend the Cairns Gem jewellery and lapidary club's annual gem show and open day.
"People coming from the Tablelands, Mossman, Innisfail, Tully and of course from Cairns," says secretary, Stella Della-Bosca.
"Because there is a trade display, people like to come along and buy their supplies. This saves them freight and also they can see what they are getting," Stella says.
This event also attracts new members and is the main event for the year for the well-established club.
The Cairns Gem Club is at 85 Greenslopes Street, Edge Hill. The doors open from 9am to 4pm, and it's free to attend.
Ashworths, from Home Hill, will be holding a trade display with items for sale relating to lapidary, gem cutting, jewellery making and beading also you can grab a bargain at a variety of stalls.
"This is an excellent opportunity to buy your Mother’s Day gifts," Stella Della-Bosca says. "There will be demonstrations featuring club activities such as faceting, lapidary, jewellery construction, chain making and glass bead making."
There will be also fossicking for gemstones to keep the children occupied. Everyone's welcome to come and see what the club is all about. More info phone 4053 4845 or Stella on 4033 5451, email Stella Della-Bosca.
