Notice of Peruvian Gold work in Calgary

Hello Orchid

This is a notice of a First time in North America Tour of Sicen
Metal work and Pottery. The Sicen came before the Incas at about
1000 years ago, following the better known Moche. They used some very
unique and advanced for that time, methods of smelting and working
Gold, Silver, and Arsenic Copper. The Nickle Arts Musuem is the first
stop here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I will be volunteering some
time demonstrating non-soldering types of jewellery making and acting
as a Docent to show people through this display. Hopefully some of
our members will be able to attend and if they come when I am
demonstrating, please introduce yourself. For the rest I hope you can
make one of the other stops as the display is breathtaking.
