Welcome to GemCrowd!
I’m Helen Driggs, the Editor here at GemCrowd and I am pleased to announce our new daily blog! As we build the community, I invite you to visit the GemCrowd Blog every weekday, because each day of the week will focus on a different aspect of the Gem and Jewelry Trade. All submissions are welcome and encouraged!
If you have information to share, just email me: [email protected]
On Mondays, we’ll look at exciting new or classic, favorite Gem and Lapidary materials. I welcome all submissions and photos of new discoveries, expanded or additional information and sources for all of the stones and gems we love. Comments are welcome and encouraged!
Tuesday will be the day for Tutorials and Tips about stones, gems, Jewelry making and other hands-on information for makers of gem and jewelry art.
Wednesday will feature reviews, updates and articles about Gem Shows, upcoming events, museum or gallery information related to the gem trade, and other important news.
Thursday is Trend Day – make sure you don’t miss the important new tools, supplies, materials and gem and jewelry trends that you and your customers are eager to find!
Friday is Focus Day, and we will take an in-depth look at a teacher, supplier, miner, cutter, collector, gem or jewelry making class, school, or business.
As we build our community, you’ll find pages where you can submit information about new or upcoming events, openings, classes, lectures, demonstrations, shows, and other entries for our Calendar of Events page.
Teachers, Schools and Instructors are welcome to submit listings to our Classes and Workshops page, and our Teacher directory will feature short biographies and links to the websites of popular teachers and artisans in the gem trade.
And, our Resource Library will include valuable information about popular Gemstones and materials for jewelry making.
