Fitzgerald Jewelry is a gallery, store, and school all in one located in the heart of Williamsburg Brooklyn just off Bedford Avenue L Stop on Grand street between Driggs & Roebling Avenues. Grand Street is a great shopping street filled with small boutiques and arts & craft shops. One of the only streets untainted by commercial takeover of Brooklyn. Our new space functions as a gallery exhibiting work by local, national, and international artists as well as collections from award winning jewelry designer Michael Fitzgerald and his wife Hiroyo Fitzgerald. The space also houses the Fitzgerald Jewelry School and Workshops. 

The Fitzgerald Jewelry School encourages creativity and exploration of all areas of jewelry making both for the casual hobbyist or the student considering a career in jewelry making. 

We offer a broad range of courses from beginner’s silversmithing through to the art of the goldsmith. Our courses can be taken consecutively over a period of a year or can be taken at the students own pace over a longer period of time. We offer special rates for students who wish to enroll in several courses. 

The studios philosophy emphasizes the art of the handmade object but also concentrates on how to make items for limited production and also for greater volume production with this in mind we provide a bridge between the studio jeweler and the jewelry industry through our classes, workshops and by directly providing a link for students to explore the New York Jewelry district.

Wonderful experience! I’d never taken a metal smithing course before and in three hours I made an actual ring with brass and silver. Sue was an excellent teacher. I highly recommend!
