Wonders of the World will host a Gemstone Folklore class on September 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Wonders of the World Bead Shop located in the Flour Mill in Spokane. Class instructors Pamela Barclay, owner of Wonders of the World, and Kendall Barclay, assistant manager, will offer their perspectives on the metaphysical properties attributed to minerals and their use.

The class offers an interactive, hands-on experience. “I’ve been teaching Gemstone Folklore classes off and on for over 20 years,” says Pamela. “It’s an exciting way to offer an overview on the way meaning is ascribed to minerals and gemstones.”

“In addition to the class, Wonders is having our semi-annual clearance sale the first two weeks of September,” shares Pamela. “Many items will be half price, including minerals and gemstone jewelry.”

Cost of class: $15; includes gemstone. Location: 621 W. Mallon St., Spokane. For more information, call 509-325-2867 or sign up for the newsletter at WondersOfTheWorldInc.com.
