Maddy Gilpin, left, and Britin Coulson, right, held an enamel jewelry demonstration on May 7 at Inga's Galley. Pictured above, the two Petersburg High School juniors are sifting powder enamel onto copper blanks with small sifters, setting them up on stainless steel trivets and torching them with butane torches, according to Ashley Lohr, PHS' art instructor. The enamel then stuck to the copper and created a smooth, glass finish. Gilpin and Coulson have been meeting as a jewelry club since late January at the start of the second semester.
