Our speaker is Dennis Victor, Metalsmith artist and store owner
“Getting the most out of your tools”
Dennis has been a metal smith and jewelry artist since the 1970’s. He shares his passion, knowledge, and experience by teaching more than 20 different classes in his store, through the West Des Moines Community Adult Ed Program, and at an array of professional shows around the country.
A slide show presentation will be “all about tools” with some helpful hints and information from the expert. Please bring any tool that you are not using because you don’t know what it is and what to do with it. Dennis will examine the tool and help by explaining its name and use. Bring your tool in a Ziploc bag with your name taped to the bag and to the tool. If you do know the name of it, please add that to your labels.

Members’ Annual Banquet – This year we will host a Members’ only Luncheon. This event features volunteer recognition and the close of our calendar year with a donation to a charity. Bring your jewelry items to donate to WARREN VILLAGE (items are “sold” to residential children to give as gifts to their mother for Christmas).
Last year, RMBS donated 223 items – Warren Village was overjoyed!! Each child was able to “purchase” 2 items for their mother for Christmas thanks to your generosity!!
30 Kits that will be available at the luncheon for next years Bead Challenge. Create what ever you want but you must use a representation of each of the items in your kit. You may add other beads from your stash to complete your piece. The cost of a kit will be $10.00 cash and the money raised will be donated to a local charity in 2016 to help with Christmas expenses for their clients.
