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.

Great workshop. So satisfying and amazing to leave knowing how do a few varieties of prong settings and with a piece of jewelry you made yourself.
Loved it. This is my third class with Liloveve. Fantastic teachers, small class size, personalized attention, and you leave with a fabulous piece of jewelry that you made yourself.
This was a tremendously informative class. As someone with no photography background, I definitely came away from this class with a better understanding about the difficulties unique to photographing jewelry. It is important to understand that even with all the great tips and suggestions, at the end of the day, there is still a lot of fussing and possibly photoshop involved. Having said that, I still think it is a very useful class for anyone who wants to take the next step and put their jewelry "out there". You won't be able to photograph every piece with an iphone, but you can still get away with quite a lot........and until you can hire a photographer to do this, you can still take good shots on your own that can be edited later. One thing I would add about the pacing of the class - I would either shorten the class by about an hour (it's a lot of information!), or lengthen it slightly so that the teacher can spend one-on-one with each student to get the best image they can.
I really enjoyed the class and am very happy with my earrings. The only negative was that I thought they would have more supplies. I would take another class at that studio.
All around great teacher. Very attentive and helpful.
Great class! Requires quite a few tools if you want to pursue this technique in the future, but the teacher was great and had tools to borrow during the class so I was able to get a good feel for what I would need to purchase.
A really excellent class for learning the basics of stone setting in wax - Emilie is also a great resource if you have more specific questions about more complex settings in wax, once you have a good feel for things. I gained a lot of confidence from this class to move beyond what was covered in class on my own. Highly recommended.
Lacey was so informative and helpful!!! I had the best time and highly reccomend taking classes at this studio,
Salt casting was a great class! Kate is a great teacher, and I appreciated the fact that it was a small class, and Kate was able to provide plenty of individual attention. I've only had a little bit of experience with metal and torch work, but I found the pace comfortable, and I think we were all able to complete two pieces in the 6-hour class. I'll definitely look for more classes at this location.
