David is a wealth of knowledge, a great teacher and a master. He gives as much individual attention as possible to each student. Don’t hesitate to take class with him! So glad I did and looking forward to continuing to learn from him.

Good class to learn at your own pace, Instructor and staff are very friendly
Great class, come with ideas!
This is my second time to take class with David. The learning experience here is so wonderful. David is so kind and patient to teach me many knowledge about the jewelry making, just feel so luck to studying in his class. Also the assistant Tomomi is so nice to help me during the class. Really appreciate them! I'd love to come back to studio next time for sure !
This is a working studio, so you get to see people working at all levels and using all sorts of materials. I really liked that the schedule is somewhat flexible. I have to travel for work and if I missed a class, I could make it up the following week as long as I gave 48 hours notice. I did make a ring and while it wasn't really my style, for a first project, I learned a lot and was able to give the ring to a friend who just loved it. I was able to make 3 things during the 8 weeks and would happily continue on here. The owner, David, is very nice and guides people very well.
David is an extremely patient, easy-going and friendly teacher. Always available to answer questions even with multiple students present and will walk around to check on others. He helped me feel like I could actually achieve the designs I wanted without much obstacle.
