Club rush is coming up and what better way to get involved than to join one of the many clubs that Salt Lake Community College has to offer. The Jewelry Club is a brand new club to SLCC. Brian Baity, club president, was able to share some details on the club’s vision.
“The ultimate vision I have for this club is to gather stones and raw materials from Utah, bring them to the club and create jewelry that can draw patronage for the club members,” says Baity. “I intend to set up shows where the artists can show and sell their work. I want to address all the aspects of jewelry creation and marketing.”
Not many clubs’ primary mission is to create profits for those involved.
“This is a group whose intent is to create jewelry to market for sale,” Baity says. “It will be required to have a basic knowledge of the tools and techniques for making jewelry. This is not a classroom environment but a gathering of people who wish to find success in the jewelry creation world.”
Students who would like to get involved with the Jewelry Club, are encouraged to attend meetings. The Jewelry Club meets Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. in CT 172, the Jewelry Lab, at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. This may change based on the needs of the majority of people who wish to belong to the club.
