I attended the conference in Chicago last year. One of the best
learning experiences I had was to just talk & share
tips & techniques & questions with the instructors & the other bench
jewelers. We’d stand around in the hallways & share info. or have
an impromtu “class”. Wear comfy shoes & bring a small notebook &
any tips or questions with you. Also bring a big stack of business
cards. I like to trade them with people I meet. I have kept in
touch with a few people I met & some have been lifesavers when I
needed info. or their special talents.
Hope to see you in Atlanta.
Here in the Ozarks the red buds are at their peak & the dogwoods
have just started blooming. 'Tis a pleasure.
