BSOC | Blinded by the Light: Optical Phenomena in Gemstones with David Horste

Having created jewelry since he was twelve years old, David Horste now designs focal beads using unusual gemstones and found objects. In this presentation, David will discuss the optical phenomena that make gemstones jump out at us in flashy, glittery, lustrous, shimmering, and mysterious ways. He will have many physical samples of gemstones that exhibit this optical phenomenon available for examination and purchase. 

Presented by the Bead Society of Orange County, an affiliate council of the Bowers Museum

Location: Fluor Gallery
