Membership Upgrade

SFJAG has just upgraded their membership management system. As with any project of this kind, we took all precautions to make sure that all of the current member data came across OK. Over the next few days, we will be completing this upgrade, so please be patient. If you are a current member of SFJAG and you cannot log in, please use this form to let us know. For those members who are coming up to renew their memberships, we will have a link active later in the week. Some members may receive a renewal email (which means that the new system is working). Thanks for your patience and understanding as we improve our site.

Lynn Yuhr Polymer Clay Earring Design

This one-day class will explore simple shapes and designs that can be used when creating earrings whether using posts or earring wires. The first half of the class is creating our polymer pieces using simple shapes and thinking about symmetry or asymmetrical design, the weight of the earrings and how to imbed findings. The second half of the class is putting them together with earring wires you will make yourself.

Registration is open to all. Visit the class page for information
