Museum Founder's Agate Ring
This week a Grand Marais resident, Ruth Beaver, brought an agate ring in and asked me to repair it. The stone had popped out, so I had to re-glue the ring. She purchased the ring from museum founder, Axel Niemi, at least 50 years ago. She was operating the Beaver House gift store when she bought the ring. It was great to see a ring that Axel himself made! She said she paid $60 for it, which is more than I would have expected.
