Saturday morning approximately 25 people gathered at the Lincoln Park District to learn a little about making jewelry and recycling unwanted items.

The class learned the art of turning old silverware into beautiful and artistic pieces of jewelry. Items made included pendants for necklaces, rings and bracelets.

For some the morning was a real family affair. Above, four generations enjoy the class. They are, right to left, Carolene Lesliegh, her daughter Kathy Vinyard, granddaughter Mandy Vinyard and great-granddaughter Chloe Vinyard.

The goal is to hit the shaping tool, not the silver and not the instructor!
