All of the August Axel Jewelry Studio instructors create the same atmosphere, so students may reach their goals.

What we'll do

Metalsmithing is a great foundation for jewelry artists of all skill levels. In this class, you'll learn to design by exploring positive and negative space to create layered effects, pierce metals, learn to saw with a jewelers saw, create textured surfaces, add metal stamped expressions and finish with the polishing wheel. Each artist will execute their own design-vision, with one-on-one support from the Instructor. A pendant? Ring? Cuff? We're here to ensure you have a firm (and safe) grasp of the techniques. Expect to have fun, get hands-on experience and leave with a finished piece for Insta-bragging rights! Sign-up today while space is available!
