    It’s been over 1.5 year of taking classes at the studio & it’s the best thing I did for myself. Although I worked in the diamond wholesale business & have a gemologist certification the process of “ jewelry making” was completely new to me. Not only do I have a renewed appreciation for jewelers , their creativity , passion & their honed skill as true artisan. The class size is small & the set -up allows for full range of work station from wax carving to setting, soldering & polishing . My teacher Collette is a patient , compassionate teacher and a very accomplished jeweler ! It’s a friendly environment where people from all walk of life gather to learn what we’ve been curious or passionate about … so it’s uplifting & interesting . There’s no shortage of creativity in this studio! My only regret is that I didn’t start this much earlier . Work, family responsibilities all took precedence but now I’m at a happy place when i get to come to class !

    The ambiance is really welcoming to learn. Collette, the artist instructor it's very serious with her responsibility. She takes the time to teach you the techniques like you are the only participant. She kindly answers & repeats demonstrations when needed. The Studio has everything you need to make your creations. You would not regret this course. Although, I would have preferred handouts for each lesson.

Question from DaliaYT
I was a welder in college (acetylene). Would I need the beginner class or can I do the advanced?
Answer from David B. Verified Educator
Thank you for your question, Yes, I think your welder work will be helpful but soldering is a different type of work using oxygen and propane, so I will recommend you to go to the beginners which also include intermediate techniques.
