Instructor Christopher Tice said he was very well pleased with the turnout of participants. He also noted that some of them chose some very ambitious designs for their pieces.

He said there was a chance that there would be a few who wouldn't get completely finished on Saturday, but that doesn't mean their pieces will be lost.

This week there will be an open house at the Lincoln Art Institute on the city square. Tice said the instructors will set up there on Thursday evening during the open house. The students who need to have their pieces sized or adjusted can come in during that time.

The open house will kick off the art institute's show "It's All About Love!" and will run from 5 to 8 p.m.

Shown on the table are some of the pieces as they looked before they were made into jewelry. Many of the items were silver, though some chose to work with stainless also.

Shelby Leigh was one of those with a very ambitious design in mind.

Her plan was to turn the four tines of the fork into two interlocking hearts. She was working with a photo she had captured on her phone.

This station was equipped with larger shaping tools for working handles into bracelets.

Sometimes, getting a piece to take shape is a real team effort.


These ladies wait their turn for having an instructor help them with their pieces.
