Alzerina Gomes

Teaches at Alzerina Jewelry

Alzerina's affinity for Swarovski began when she first left her home in Cape Verde, West Africa to Paris. After her first visit at Daniel Swarovski she fell in love with the company, its products and the idea of becoming a successful jewelry designer on her own. Now residing in New York with her family, she has succeeded in this goal and is always expanding her ideas and trying to stay ahead of the trends.

Alzerina was recently awarded the Congressional Certificate of Recognition by the U.S. Congress for her contribution to preserving Cape Verdean culture in the United States and for representing her adopted country's efforts at a trade show in her homeland where she taught workshops for local impoverished teens. She has also been asked to represent a U.S. initiative to help further entrepreneurial skills and marketplace capability for women in emerging African countries.

Alzerina's elegant designs, enhanced by the use of Swarovski elements and her youthful Alzi line of contemporary bracelets, earrings and necklaces have been featured in numerous publications. She has gained a large following in the last few years and is working with Warner Brother Product placement, Disney Picture TV Show Liv and Maddie, and has worked with Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen 2011/12. Her jewelry has been adorned by Sharon Stone, Olivia Wilde, Tracy Bergman on the set of "the Young and the Restless," Carol Siva of Channel 12 News, actress Kathryn Winnick of "Vikings" and Rosanna Scotto of NY's Channel 5 News. She has sold in quantity through her own and other web sites. Last year she lit up Times Square when she was featured on the NBC electronic billboard overlooking NY's most famous tourist areas.

Alzerina, remains dedicated to incorporating Swarovski elements in many of her creations.

The instructor worked closely with me on executing my concept. She was helpful and encouraging. Small class meant lots of individual attention. Cheerful and relaxed atmosphere. I learned a lot

It was a great class! The teacher is friendly and dedicated time to each of her students. I was very happy with the wiring technique I learned during the workshop! I will definitely want to book another workshop with her!

This class was wonderful. Alzerina is very lovely and it’s a very relaxed and welcoming environment. You pick your stones and make what you like, with Alzerina’s assistance. My group enjoyed it very much.

This class went well beyond my expectations in every way. The teacher was fabulous and we had a wonderful time. She had such great supplies, lovely bead selection and so patient. I love my necklace that resulted from designing with her beautiful beautiful offerings!

This class was not informative or instructive at all. There was no structure, organization or any dialogue about the learning objectives that were in the class listing. The instructor was very nice and had a really sweet dog but it was not worth 1.5 hours of my time or $80. I made one beaded bracelet. All I did was string the beads. She put the clasps (is that what they’re called?) on. That was the part I was hoping- and asked- to learn. When I get a chance I will look into a partial refund. I think the bracelet I made was worth $2. And the instructor probably spent a total of 15 minutes with me. And there were only 3 of us in the “class.” Also there was no AC. It happened to be a hot and humid day and we were in her apartment on the 33rd floor. There was also no adequate space to use to make the jewelry. I can’t wait to go on YouTube to learn how to do this myself. I will not recommend this class to anyone and likely not use coursehorse again.

My friend and I are still kind of in disbelief that we spent $80 on this class. The instructor spent almost the entire class helping one other person (a friend/return student), and would only help us if we basically begged her. She finished the jewelry piece for us vs. showing us how to do it so we didn't learn anything. There was also no AC and it was distractingly hot in her apartment. She also has a dog that is up in everyone's business, which was fine with us but might not be fine with everyone. We would happily return the items we made for a refund but we assume that's not possible.

I really loved the class. I got to make two awesome bead bracelets. I can't believe how beautiful they came out and I created it with Alzerina 's help. Alzerina provided a relaxing and safe place to create and learn a new skill/hobby. She show me what to do and then I began to created my blacklets with her help, suggestion, and guidance. I going to take a another class to learn how to do a necklace and earrings.

The teacher helped me create a piece that I love. I am grateful for the experience. She is clearly knowledgeable about her craft. She was patient and attentive to the students. The only thing that was a slight drawback for me was that the location was a bit difficult to find as it seemed to be a residence.

Fantastic bead & material selection, beautiful teacher—a truly exciting place to spend an afternoon. I would have to take a few more classes to learn how to finish pieces—but I was very happy with the piece I brought home!

Alzerina’s class was a lot of fun. Got to learn how to wire wrap & make a cool beaded necklace. Her disposition is so cheerful, it made the experience v.interesting. She was very encouraging and gave a ton of cool tips & info about what tools to get when you’re starting out with jewelry making.

Our class was great! Google Maps took us to the next street over, so make sure you're actually on 95th when you get to the neighborhood! It was a low-pressure, fun experience and my girlfriend and I walked away with some new skills and two fun necklaces (both for her). I highly recommend this experience.

I really liked the class! Alzerina provided examples and gave us freedom to choose what we want to work on during the class. As we worked on the bracelets she supported us without any pressure. Recommended!
