Over the past 13 years, the Bentley's have been making jewelry, wind chimes and many other items out of antique silverware. Each piece comes with a history sheet that tells the date, maker and name of the pattern. Many unique items will be available for purchase that evening.
During the program participants will learn the difference between coin, nickel, plated and sterling. And also learn how to identify patterns that cover over a 100 year span. Those attending are welcome to bring a piece of silver from their family that they would like to have information about.
Valentine week refreshments will include different types of chocolates for participants to sample. The program is free and preregistration is requested. Please phone 989-743-4800 to reserve a seat.
The library is located at 210 E. Corunna Avenue, behind the Historic Shiawassee County Courthouse.
