Visiting Artist, April Bower, taught Lapidary Club members how to fashion amazing metal jewelry using several techniques, including torches, patinas and fold forming. The Burnished Bi-metal Bracelets were truly unique and individualized. The Tribal Trio Pendant and Earrings set featured sterling silver wire with ball ends on copper.
Participants were Ernie Lopez, LisaTeman-Rosenburg, Cheryl Osburn, Judy Foy, Jerry Canaday, Nancy Riordon, JoAnn Scultz, Marsha Royer, Susan Branch and Kaye Miller.
Here are April’s comments after the class:
“It was good to meet you all and have such a great group of students in a lovely facility. Renee remarked that you all were fearless and jumped in with the different aspects of the projects and got a lot accomplished in the short time we had together. It was a pleasure to be there.”
We are looking forward to April’s return in 2018!
