Private Jewelry Making Lessons

July 15-August 19

I am pleased to offer private jewelry making instruction for all levels in my studio, located in historic Hudson, NY, one of the most charming, hidden (but not for long) gems outside of NYC, Hudson is two and a half hours north of NYC, but easily accessible by train or car. 

Students will spend a full or half day immersed in learning new and perfecting existing techniques, including stone setting, design, and fabrication. Each session is custom tailored to suit every student’s goals, which we will be mapped out in advance of the class. We can  also tour Ornamentum, and Bavier Brook Antique Jewelry as well as other jewelry jewelry related spots in Hudson, as a part of our day
