Lapidary Club members learn from visiting artist

Cathy Hasson

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!
