BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE, NY: You can be your own jeweler! Join instructor Lisa Oristian for a workshop to make a Helm Chain Bracelet on Friday, October 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.

All tools will be provided but bring a small hand towel or other piece of soft fabric to use as a mat while you work — and bring your magnifiers! This unsoldered chain depends on careful closure of the rings, so it is important that you can see well.

The fee for this class is $45 for Arts Center members and $55 for non-members. The class fee includes all special materials and instruction. Class size is limited to seven participants. Register and prepay online at or call (518) 352-7715. The Arts Center is located at 3446 State Route 28, Blue Mountain Lake.
