LAPIDARY/BEADING NEWS 2018



Lapidary / Beading Club  April 2018 

Lapidary has had another fun and successful season with lots of new classes and creative learning opportunities.  Just a few highlights include, polymer clay, resin, card making with bead accents, wire wrapping,  silversmithing making beautiful rings,  glass fusing, alcohol inks, free beading classes with kits provided for a slight fee, bead stringing and jewelry  made from silverware.  If any of this sounds fun come join the club.  It is a great place to learn new things and show off your own creative side.

As our season comes to a close for many of our residents, we are happy to say the club remains open to all members  throughout the summer.   At this time there are no scheduled classes but there are several full time members that will get together to share their talents.  The same rules apply, if doing silversmithing or lapidary there is always a buddy system.

This year we decided it was time for our club to give back to our community.  As a group we made 40 plus necklaces, earrings and bracelets.  All proceeds from the sale of these items will go to Benevilla and Salvation Army / backpacks for school children.  Stop by the Lakes Rec. Center and take a look in the window.

WEDNESDAYS CLASS THIS WEEK NETTED RIVOLI EARRINGS


WEDNESDAY 1:00 - 3:30 THE LAKES AT WBV PEORIA AZ

This week’s class is Netted Rivoli Bezel Earrings 

Kits including directions are $10, because there are (2) earrings and they use 12 4mm Swarovski Bicones and (2) 12mm Rivoli and 2 colors of 11/0 seed beads, 2 wire Guardians and 2 earwires.  The printed directions are included with the kit.  The directions also cover how to make a matching ring and if interested, the ring kit is $5. And includes either a 12mm or 14mm (if you like larger rings), (6) 4mm Bicones and 2 colors of seed beads, but a larger number for the band  and an additional 6 Picots on the ring top than the earrings used.  I have about 10 different colors of Rivoli in the 12mm and 4 in the 14mm.  I have dozens of 11/0 color choices
