The San Joaquin Valley Lapidary Society is located in Bakersfield, California. We are a group of rock hounds dedicated to the sharing of knowledge about the lapidary arts. We meet weekly for workshops in lapidary, silversmith, and wire wrapping/beading. We were founded in 2005, and are incorporated as a 501 (c) 3. Part of our focus is education, and offer a program for area elementary school 4th and 6th graders that supplements their geology studies.

Gene Stirm Exhibit
The Tehachapi Museum featured the work of artist and club member Gene Stirm during a reception and open house on October 2nd as a part of the Community's First Friday event.
Pictured on the left is Gene with the display of his cabochons and silver smith work.
Four of us from Bakersfield were able to attend the reception for Gene and are very proud of his work, and happy to have him as a valued member of the SJVLS. Our congratulations to Gene.
