Liloveve is a boutique jewelry studio located in the vibrant and artistic neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We offer jewelry classes and workshops that explore the inherent creativity of our individual students as well as technical aspects of the craft. We function as a bridge between the art of jewelry making and the production aspects of the jewelry industry – reviving ancient hand crafting skills as well as understanding modern tools and techniques. Jewelry making is an antique art, having existed since the cave era. It has flourished throughout history up to our current day. We travel that rich lineage through a series of classes that delve into the organic handmade process, from introductory level courses up to professional model making and fine jewelry design.
