Johnson Lapidary Club
"Gem & Rock Cutting, Polishing & Setting"They're not just pretty rocks... They're works of art & love!
The Johnson Lapidary Club is a social and hobby club. Lapidary is the art of cutting, forming and polishing gemstones and precious materials.
If you have visitors with youngsters, stop by for a FREE bag of polished rocks. All young visitors can pick a bag of polished rocks. You’ll be surprised; they will play with them and it’s a great memento of their visit.
Club members use modern cutting, shaping and polishing equipment to create their “works of art” as jewelry (e.g. Bola’s, Belt buckles, Pendants, Earrings, etc), bookends, clocks or other pieces. Members also wrap their “work of art” in Sterling Silver and other wire to make jewelry. We have dichroic glass equipment and faceting equipment used to facet man-made or natural gems. As a member you can purchase materials, settings, findings, tools, etc. from the club at competitive prices.
We provide beginner/advanced classes. Visit us in the R.H. Johnson Center for a tour and to get more information.It’s fun, easy, and very rewarding. Remember Lapidary – ROCKS!
