Brad's Jewelry Classes

Since 2002 I have been teaching Adult-Ed jewelry classes first in Los Angeles and more recently in Santa Monica, CA. Subject matter runs the full gamut from beginner level soldering and stone setting to advanced topics like hinges, hollow-form construction, vacuum casting, Keum-Boo, filigree, fold forming, and stone or metal inlay. To help students learn better techniques for solving common problems, improving quality and saving time, I've written up a series of jewelry making bench tips and have enjoyed sharing them with others.

Class Pic The Adult-Ed Center has a well equipped jewelry facility with classes limited in size to ensure plenty of personal attention to learn and perfect your new jewelry making skills. All tools needed for the projects are available in the classroom. All supplies and materials will be provided except for precious metals, silver for casting, findings and your choice of faceted gems and cabochons.

Class Pic Afternoon or evening classes are available to fit most schedules. One class is held Mondays & Wednesdays from 6:00-9:00pm, and the other is Tuesdays & Thursdays from 1:30-4:30pm. Each class runs for 8 - 10 sessions depending on the topic.
