Small classes. Lots of help. Make jewelry like a pro.


Classes at Silvera Jewelry School are small, 9 students max, with lots of hands-on-help and critique to accelerate your learning.


Demonstrations are magnified live on a flat screen television so that everyone can see and understand the process. Imagine seeing solder flow and melt into a join in HD clarity.  


We offer 3-hour and one, two and three day metalsmithing workshops for intensive learning in soldering, stone setting, and lots of other metalsmithing techniques. We also offer some weekly courses, usually in the evenings. 


Classes include all your materials, including sterling silver to make your projects. Each student has a bench with a complete set of tools to use. Nothing extra to buy!
