2018 Schedule for Speakers & Events

Saturday, May 26, 2018 - Sindi Schloss

Sindi Schloss speaker May 2018

From Caves to Condos: Humans' First Jewelry: Beads!

Join Sindi for a fascinating overview of the history of human adornment through the bead, as well as factors which help us to identify conditions which make some beads more expensive than others. This presentation should help us better ID these small but far from insignificant treasures and have a greater awareness of their value.

Sind Schloss is a Gemologist and founder/president of the International Gemological Services. She will have a book available for purchase "Beads: A Reference and Price Guide."
