What: Richard Cybulski Stone Show When: May 14, 2016, 1:00 – 4:00pm Where: Soquel, CA 95073 (directions emailed
Richard Cybulski is from Watertown, CT but he spends much of his time in Brazil. He will be bringing a large selection of Brazilian gemstones, including beautiful, but reasonably priced, cabochons, faceted stones, an incredible selection of rose cut stones and a large selection of gemstone strands.
Richard Cybulski has been traveling monthly to Brazil for the past 20 years, and has developed strong contacts with cutters of a large variety of Brazilian gemstones. These include fine faceted, cabochons, rose-cuts, slices and designer beads in a wide range of stones, including aquamarine, beryl, morganite, emerald, tourmaline, amethyst, citrine, ametrine, precious topaz, blue topaz, andaluzite, amazonite, orange chalcedony and designer quartzes of assorted natural inclusions.
Richard travels all over the country, working with a large range of designers and manufacturers. He enjoys seeking out unusual pieces, all offered at wholesale prices. Of course, he also provides standard calibrated cuts as well. He owns all of his stones; he does not act as a representative or dealer for third parties. He is 100% responsible for his materials, none of which are dyed or coated.

at the Z Folio Gallery in Monterey, CA
December 4, 2015 – January 4, 2016
Reception: Sunday, December 6, 2015 from 3 pm to 5 PM
MBMAG is excited to present a gallery exhibition opportunity this December and January. Many of our members have been looking for new exhibit opportunities, so not only is this an opportunity to enhance your resume, but also a chance to market work in a gallery setting. This gallery has an online presence, see Z Folio.
The theme Adornment may be interpreted as you wish. A little research on the meaning of the word might inspire you. Each artist may submit up to two new pieces of jewelry or small sculpture not previously shown in a Guild exhibit. This announcement is far in advance of the deadline, to give you time to create something new. All pieces submitted to this show must be for sale, and priced with commissions to the gallery in mind (50% to artist/50% to gallery).
