Creston lapidary club hosting jewelry-making classes

Web Lead

The Creston Valley Prospectors and Lapidary Club is offering several courses in January on making jewelry from semi-precious gemstones, such as agate.

Each course will be three two-hour sessions at the club’s workshop in the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce building, and limited to three students due to the available amount of equipment and tools. Participants will be provided with gem materials. Instructors will teach the basic methods of making a piece of jewelry, such as a ring or pendant.

The course fee is $25, which will be applied as a club membership. After the course, students may use the club workshop to continue to make jewelry, as well as participating in other club activities. The club appreciates the financial support of the Community Arts Council of Creston for these courses.

For more information or gift certificates, call Gerry Rehwald at 250-428-0236.
