This presentation, containing nearly 70 pictures, reveals the beauty of jewels. After finding out what makes a gemstone, where they are found, how they are obtained and turned into jewels, we look at some of the famous jewels in history and the gem collections of famous - and lucky - women! (Queen Marie Antoinette was an exception, perhaps.) The audience is invited to wear their own special gems in celebration of this sparkling display. This talk is also accompanied by a display of interesting gemstone objects and dress rings to try on (not for sale) .Views: 145 | Enquiries: 1
I'm a retired (Science) teacher with a passion for History. I started talks about 5 years ago, found I enjoyed it and, until now, have never advertised: word got around from those who had heard my presentations and I often have repeat bookings.
Many of my talks are accompanied by items I bring for illustration and I always bring projector, laptop (and screen if required). Illustrated talks last about one hour.
I enjoy meeting people - whether it is WI, TG, Probus, church groups or others and welcome input during talks - people often have interesting anecdotes of their own to share.
I'm prepared to travel - about a 15 mile radius from my home in Atherton M46. My aim is to provide a good morning, afternoon or evening for my audience to make their outing worthwhile.
I talk on about a dozen different topics and will be glad to send (by email) information on all of them to interested enquirers.
