Before the mid-1940's, a master engraver would create jewelry by carving each design into a steel block by hand, resulting in what's called a "hub." The Museum of American Jewelry Design and Manufacturing houses the largest collection of jewelry hubs, 3,000, in America-from filigree rings, pendants and earrings to cufflinks, lockets and wedding bands - from every design period.

Take a factory tour led by owner and goldsmith Hugo Kohl and watch goldsmiths practice the fine art of jewelry making. Visit the gallery to see the designs pulled from the hub vault and the jewelry manufactured on-site in the working factory-museum. Hear the fascinating story of jewelry-making and collecting.

Cost: $7.00 payable to LLI at registration

Deadline for registration with payment is November 4. No cancellations after noon on November 4.
