Lacombe Handicraft and Lapidary Guild


Red Deer Rock n’ Gem Show

Our Rock Club had a table at the Red Deer Rock n' Gem Show yesterday. We displayed a number of member-made items on our table (beadwork items by Carolyn (Lady Beadle); fold-formed items by Ron; hand-forged copper bowls by Doug; and wire-wrapped and silversmith items by me). Ron, Doug, and Tony took turns giving fold-forming demonstrations for onlookers (using an anvil mounted on a hardwood stump) and gave the resultant copper "leaves" to visitors. Tony and I ground and polished rocks into cabochons on the genie. Carolyn did beadwork at the table.[...]
