I will show you my personal work, and then, with my guidance, you will start making jewelry by hammering, filing, sanding, wiring wrapping gem stones and stamping letters on metal. You will be selecting from two different metals, copper or brass. Since you can stamp letters on your design, you can customize it with your initials, a short message, or a special date.

Where we’ll be
We will meet at my private studio in the East Village. Because it is a studio run by an active jewelry designer, it is an artistic space decorated with my own work.
