Creative Metal Arts Guild needs help

The Creative Metal Arts Guild, based in Portland, Oregon, is a
non-profit organization which exists to create a community for
metalsmiths, jewelers and metal artists by facilitating
communication, providing and benefits, promoting a
positive image of the creative metal artist and increasing public
awareness of the artist’s contribution to the community. We are
initiating an educational outreach program which we will use to
teach a little bit of jewelry technique and history to small informal
groups at places like high schools or churches. Our class will be in
the form of a “kit” that any CMAG member will be able check out and
present to a group. We are soliciting donations of beads, wire and
tools to help us with this project. If you have any old supplies you
would like to get rid of, please consider donating them to our guild.
Here is what we need: *Pliers - round nose, flat nose, beading, chain
nose, cutters, etc. *Findings - ear wires, clasps, etc. *Wire -
copper, brass, bronze, silver, colored copper; any gauge *Beads -
anything from seed beads to bigger beads

Thank you!

You can contact me off-list if you want to donate or have questions,
Thanks! Margaret Frison (CMAG and multi-year Orchid member)
