Gems from Life from flies of Elephants by Maggie Campbell Pedersen
The Arts Society Abingdon is holding its monthly lecture on Wednesday 18th September 2019, 10.30am and 2.00pm, at Trinity Church, Conduit Road, Abingdon, OX14 1DB.
Gems from Life from flies of elephants by Maggie Campbell Pedersen
A richly illustrated lecture introducing you to organic gem materials their uses and origins. Amber, horn, tortoiseshell, ivory, pearl, shell and coral, have all been used for many thousands of years as adornment – in the form of jewellery, and for decorating our surroundings as carvings and furniture inlay. From current trade bans to spotting fakes, this talk is an absolute gem!
Non-Members welcome, £6.00. The lectures are one hour long, but leave extra time for announcements etc.
