Member News

The club jewelry classes have been full and members produced a variety of jewelry  pieces.  Show here by artist.

Rob Ferraud has been busy with pendants and rings.  Our last class was a simple folded copper pendant where he used a swirly Vernon Wonder Stone cab.  Picture of a ring he made for her will post as soon as I can find it.

SUCR Classes

Theron Roberts used an exceptional cab from a slab purchased in Quartzsite to do his copper pendant.  We finished late an I forgot to get a picture.  I’ll bet he took one and would share with you.

James Warner has been busy with a new outlet for his energy  Note the silver ring, two copper pendants and a copper and silver bracelet with a beautiful Varacite Cab made from his finds on the SNGMS/SURC group trip to Tonopah’s Broken Arrow Mine.
