Get Creative!

Lapidary/Silversmith is a way to get your creative juices flowing.  Members have a great facility to make a wide variety of rock projects, including things as small as a pendant to slabbing large rocks for mountain scenes, coasters or trivets. After lapidary class, students may want to be trained on the silversmith side of The Shop.  There you will learn to create silver settings for gemstones, such as a ring or pendant.  Resin turntables have become a very popular way to cut and polish rocks and make a useful item!
