Gems galore

Lindsay Foster, 12, a member of the Maple Ridge Lapidary Club, holds a picture rock up for auction during the annual Rock and Gem Show at Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall on Sunday. There were demonstrations of silversmithing, stone carving, gemstone faceting, jewelry design and fabrication, using polymer clay, making gemstone cabochons, enameling, lamp working and wire wrapping. There was also on-site classes, vendors and a craft corner. Below, Brad Kostachuk of the Maple Ridge Lapidary Club makes a bead in a lamp work glass demonstration. - Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
