Lapidary Club

Enjoy the creation of wearable art and jewelry of all kinds.

 

Purpose: We are a club for creating beautiful jewelry & fashionable, wearable art and for those who enjoy working with metals, stones & gemstones. We believe that you can learn to create jewelry & lapidary art in a short time and that your life will be greatly enriched from making beautiful works to share with friends & family. Our public Retail Store is open daily – Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 10am to 1pm, Tuesday & Thursday from Noon to 3pm – and offers a wide array of jewelry & lapidary art.

Membership: Open to all CA Members and (if space allows) Kings Point residents. Club dues are $15 for the first year & $10 annually thereafter. We are located on the east end of the Arts & Crafts Building. Products produced on club equipment and with club supplies may be used for gifts, personal use or for sale in the Retail Store and are not for personal profit. A requirement of membership is a contribution of items to sell in the store and a commitment to work once a month in the store or assist the instructors in the classes.

Meetings: Beginner and advanced classes are offered for: beading, cabochons, chain maille bracelets, enameling, faceting, lost-wax casting, Ming-trees, silversmithing, and wire-wrap bracelets, wire-wrapping pendants and PMC (Precious Metal Clay). Sign-up sheets for classes are available in the Lapidary Club Store, during store hours.  We have a wide array of equipment and supplies for most areas of lapidary work and jewelry making. Precious, semi-precious and glass beads as well as almost everything needed for jewelry making is available for sale at wholesale prices to club members weekly.
