COMAG Meet Up for September 2016

Thank you to Mr. Steve Douglas from Douglas Fine Jewelry for hosting our meeting for September.

Steve graciously shared his home work shop space to host the annual tool swap meeting.  We also had some good eats with BBQ, salads and desserts...yum..thank you again Steve!

Mr. Gary Dawson, a jeweler from Eugene, also gave a nice formal presentation about "Tools & Technolgy".  He shared the history of how jewelry making has come along from hundreds of years ago all the way to today's methods of CAD technology and 3D Printing.

The group had a nice discussion of how some this technology can be incorporated into the art of jewelry.  Some members even showed samples of their work with the group.
