What you'll learn in this silver class:

This class is a fun, fast-paced introduction to creating handmade jewelry. Students are familiarized with basic studio tools and fabrication techniques for working in sterling silver. Soldering, sawing and filing shapes, forming and joining, ring sizing, polishing and basic stone setting will be practiced in class. 

Students are encouraged to explore creativity within design parameters while learning the fundamentals of technique to allow for construction of new jewelry ideas. We include a tour of the jewelry district and a complete list of trade references and supplier resources to provide the new student with a full introduction to the jewelry industry. Small class sizes are perfect for both absolute beginners or those looking to refresh their skills.

Question from anonymous
Is there a more advance class at this studio?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Though it's named "Intro" this class is also good for advanced students- they often have repeat students taking the course. Because of our small class sizes, each person gets a lot of individual attention and our instructors adapt to everyone's individual skill set and needs. Also, the first project is a little bit more challenging and students can choose to create a more complicated design. This class really hones in on construction and soldering skills. I hope that's helpful!
Question from Amelia W.
Is this is a good course to jump into if someone is looking to create an engagement ring and/or wedding band?
Answer from Chermalyn P. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi, Amelia! The provider advised that this is a good class to learn the techniques involved with crafting a wedding band, but the class works only in silver. It is also a structured class meaning that there are set projects to work on, there's plenty of creative leeway but you'd be making more than just a ring. This class would be great for students to take and then if they wanted to make a wedding band in gold afterward, they suggest booking a private lesson.

I loved the class. The instructors were always teaching us little tricks to help us become more comfortable and efficient in working with the material. They would do a demo and then we would go execute the steps, which I think really helps in the learning and obtaining of knowledge that we learned.

Such a fun class! Learned so much. We made a ring and a pendant. Instructors of this class are very very helpful and friendly. There are only 6 or 7 students in the class and there are two instructors.. which is 1 instructor for every 3-3.5 students. The studio is soooo cute too! This place is such a gem in Brooklyn! I'd love to sign up for more classes with them :)
