Learn the basic skills needed to begin designing and fabricating your own handmade jewelry! No previous experience necessary.  Techniques for sawing, piercing, soldering, and polishing silver will be introduced.  You will complete at least two projects, which will include learning how to bezel set a stone.  Your final piece will be of jewelry store quality that you can wear or give with pride! Please bring a $30 materials fee and a one time $25 lab fee to the first class.



    Continue to build on the skills you learned in Jewelry I.  Many new forming techniques will be taught, including use of a hydraulic press, fold-forming, and more advanced constructing.  Students will work at their own pace, exploring ever-more advanced techniques.  The instructors will guide and encourage students as they find their own "voice" as jewelry designers.  Please bring a $25 materials fee and a one-time $25 lab fee to the first class.  Open studio time is included with tuition.
