Liloveve is a boutique jewelry studio located in the vibrant and artistic neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We offer jewelry classes and workshops that explore the inherent creativity of our individual students as well as technical aspects of the craft. We function as a bridge between the art of jewelry making and the production aspects of the jewelry industry – reviving ancient hand crafting skills as well as understanding modern tools and techniques.
Jewelry making is an antique art, having existed since the cave era. It has flourished throughout history up to our current day. We travel that rich lineage through a series of classes that delve into the organic handmade process, from introductory level courses up to professional model making and fine jewelry design.
The Liloveve Jewelry School offers classes and workshops in the art of handcrafting jewelry. There are many reasons that people come to take a jewelry class; to further their appreciation for a handmade aesthetic; to develop skills as an artisan; to enhance a burgeoning business career in fashion, industrial design, architecture, etc.; or the desire to open their own business. The courses available at Liloveve cover techniques and skills for all levels, including a variety of 6-week classes or shorter, weekend workshops.
What are some of your most popular classes that you offer on CourseHorse?
Our Ring Making Intensive is the most popular, but people also love our six-week Intro to Silversmithing and Intro to Wax Carving classes as well.
How long have you been in business? Can you tell us a bit about your history?
Liloveve was founded as a labor of love to share the fulfilling craft of jewelry making. Our owner had been teaching classes at various schools for a number of years before turning Liloveve Jewelry Studio into a fully operational school in 2009.
What is your average class size?
Our average class size is 7–10 people. We like to keep it small to create an intimate environment with a lot of individual attention from the instructor.
What is your typical student like? What are their goals?
Our students are typically young adults looking for a creative outlet. People that want to work with their hands and create something beautiful.
Can you recommend activities to do in the neighborhood before or after class?
In Williamsburg, there's a plethora of things to do. Lots of shopping, restaurants, people watching, cafes, galleries, the list goes on.
Fantastic. Caroline is the best. The wax carving (and metal work after your piece is cast) is fun, gratifying, and even meditative. You’ll end up with a beautiful ring with a stone setting that you made!
This was an excellent intro class! The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided a thorough explanation of each step in the ring making process. The class size was nice, and there was plenty of time to complete the project.
The instructor was amazing! Loved the course and learned so much.
I love the classes at Liloveve! I learned so much in the Ring Making Intensive and came out with two beautiful, handmade rings. The intensives are also great because you don't need to bring any materials or tools, they're provided in the class fee.
Great class! Caroline was amazing!
Such a great class! You’ll learn how to use the materials and tools and actually create original jewelry.
Great class. Class size should be smaller
When you first get there, it's a little confusing because the outside is not clearly labeled and it just looks like a regular brownstone building. But once you ring the door and go inside, it's a really cute studio with two floors. Each person gets their own desk, complete with sets of tools to share. Erica was our teacher and she did a really good job of helping each and every one of us, while still allowing us to do it ourselves. I really enjoyed this class and got three rings out of it! I would definitely recommend this class if you're interested in doing something different. I've never worked with jewelry before but Erica made it super easy to learn!
It was so great! My only wish was that it was a bit longer in time.
Love this class. Will highly recommend!
