Metal artist, April Bower from Pine, Arizona, returned to the Lapidary Studio with her assistant, Renee, to teach two classes: A Reticulated Rad Ring and an XOXO bracelet. Ten members attended each class and learned new techniques, using the torches, hammers and mandrels to create unique and individualized patterns on their silver pieces.
