Jewelry Arts Institute
Our studio at Jewelry Arts is fully equipped to facilitate your learning experience.  There is one kiln and one Smith acetelyne torch for every two students. All of our rolling mills, hammers, drawplates, lapidary equipment, draw benches, flexible shafts, anvils, and grinding and polishing equipment are free for student use.  Lockers are available for a rental fee.  We also provide free wireless internet access, flat-screen tv with cable, laptop for student use and complimentary coffee!  To-the-trade Stone Dealers are available during every class and we offer free workshops and lectures for enrolled students.
Jewelry Arts Institute specializes in one-one instruction, with a team-teaching approach that results in a student-teacher ratio of about 4 or 5 to 1.  All instructors are highly trained and experienced professional jewelers and teachers.  Instructors work with students at each step of production and are thoroughly equipped to discuss and demonstrate techniques and help solve problems encountered by students at all levels.
A visit to any of the world’s great museums will reveal the extraordinary opulence, craftsmanship and beauty of what is called “classical jewelry.”  Ancient cultures, particularly those of Egypt, Greece and Rome, had discovered ways of working with high-karat gold and fine silver, such as fusing and granulation, which later became the hallmarks of ancient jewelry-making.  As the demand for jewelry grew over time and machines were built to mass-produce it; however, many of the ancient techniques were lost – seemingly forever.
