The Pasadena Lapidary Society (PLS) is excited to announce that their next meeting will feature Stan McCall, manufacturing jeweler and owner of Custom Creative Gem Cutting in Cypress. McCall will present “Creating An Intarsia Pendant”. Intarsia, a very old, very precise technique originally used by Italian craftsmen to create intricate patterns with wood. Adapted to lapidary, the technique involves working with tiny pieces of thinly sliced stone to make an image. Intarsia is just one of Stan’s specialties in gem cutting. He has been cutting stone professionally for over 16 years. He is also President of the American Opal Society. Open to the public, free admission. Bring in a rock or mineral you’ve always wanted identified, visit the back table for specimens collected at recent field trips; make new friends and learn some rockin’ geology.
