Jewelry Class Description

Level 3 classes are designed to further your progression in technique and design. With the practical and technical skills you have acquired, you will be encouraged to create and challenge yourself with more sophisticated self-directed projects. Our instructors will introduce more advanced stone setting and soldering skills through demos and will teach a variety of surface treatment techniques to further enhance your design ideas.
