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.

Club members work on hand crafted items during a workshop in July. Ming trees and wire wrapped jewelry are to sell at the upcoming Kern Co. Fair.
Pictured above the work of making Ming trees is in progress, while across the room another group works on wire wrapping.
The trees and wire wrapped cabs are truly beautiful, and we are proud to be able to offer them at the fair. There will be another evening workshop on August 28th at Hall at 6 pm. There will also be a chance to work on sale items at Anna's Saturday workshop this August 19 starting at 9 am. Thanks to all for participating, and an open invitation to those who have not yet taken part. See you at a workshop.
