"I loved making jewelry and getting to know everyone in the class!"

Coming to us with a variety of experience and background in jewelry making and metalwork, students learn techniques of cutting, hammering, soldering, forming, and stone setting. Students develop these skills to create rings, pendants, chains, pins, and bracelets, as well as small-scale sculptural pieces. Students learn to work with brass, silver, and precious and semiprecious stones.

This is a discipline through which students can explore their art with a heightened attention to technical and aesthetic detail. Instruction and projects are highly individualized, depending on ability. Students with more experience often work independently on advanced projects. All levels of experience are welcome.
