Feel the joy of creating your very own piece of wearable art.

Ayaka Nishi Jewelry School is a private jewelry school that is in the private studio of a jewelry artist. We provide semi-private classes with a small number of only four students per class. From the 1st class experience, curriculum, you can choose beginner's course of all 12 times, wax course, such as free production class, depending on the purpose.

For a student with no experience of jewelry production, I will teach you carefully from scratch. Would you like to partake in jewelry making fun together in an artistic space in a home-like environment?

You will create pieces from nothing by welding using a gas burner, or setting the stones. You can use all tools provided in the studio.

We are conveniently located in the East Village where many other artists live. Because it is a studio run by an active jewelry designer, it is an artistic space decorated with her own work.

My friend and I took it together and it was a ton of fun! We love our rings! The instructor and her assistant did all the soddering (with a blow torch) which I didn't mind so much considering I have no idea what I'm doing. The instructor is super talented and you can view and purchase her amazing pieces towards the front of the studio.

I am very disappointed in this class. While the description said premium materials could be purchased, I was only given the options of silver and brass. 4 other students from other courses were there and we were all competing for the instructors attention. I sat, waiting for what to do next for most of the class, and ended up being pretty much self directed or on my phone. The instructor does the welding and diamond setting for you - all you do is saw a metal sheet, stamp your initials and polish the ring. I am so disappointed I spent so much money to have a disappointing experience and a ring that turns my finger green. The teacher is very nice but she didn’t actually teach me anything.

Great introduction to the world of jewelry design and creation! It's an intimate school/shop setting so you get to really interact with Ayaka and her team. Totally recommend and will return for more classes!

Enjoyed it a lot! Do wish I could have had the chance to do the actual soldering and stone setting. Either way it was fairly easy to follow and was happy to complete the ring!
