has been an interest to me for many years. Finally I started doing inlay
in silver mountings to make a belt of bean shapes, which lead to making
pictures in the same intarsia technique. Vern McCullough gave a class at
the Mineral & Gem Club of Castro Valley. He was the teacher of a class
at our shop, to a group of those intereted members, who still pursue the
craft. At our annual show, there is always an interesting display."
