Lapidary Club Having Fun

Jim Mitchell

During November and December, club members were very active in creating and making a vast array of fused glass projects of Christmas decorations and presents, as well as plates, bowls, and dishes. Others were taking rocks and stone and turning them into pieces of jewelry, various sculptures, and a clock. There were others spending time making a variety of silver jewelry using different techniques. Yes, the Lapidary Shop was a buzz with these and many other activities, everyone participating in a spirit of playfulness, humor, and joy collaboratively. So much was accomplished and celebrated through the support and care of everyone. We have a lot of fun taking nothing and making something that can be enjoyed, shared, and given away.

All who live or rent in SunBird are welcome to join. The Lapidary Club meets on the first Friday of each month from November through April with a $10 fee to join. Classes are free and taught by local artisans living in SunBird. Basic Rock classes, Fused Glass classes, Stained Glass class, Basic Silver classes, and others will be held during the month of January.

Whenever you are up on the second floor of the clubhouse, if someone is in the shop, stop in and visit. Join up and be amazed as to what you can create.
