Would you not like to work with an instructor who really enjoys what he is doing and his biggest joy is too see the spark in the eyes of his students when they finish the piece of jewelry they worked on, look at it and say: ‘I made this; wow!”

They will not want to believe you and say “You made this? Come on…” You will just smile and add, “There is more coming..”

Master Silversmith Levent Oz will guide you through all the steps to creating professional crafted jewelry. The classes are 2 hours  for four consecutive weeks. All materials and tools included. Class sizes are small, no more than 8 students at a time.

Beginner, intermediate and advanced classes each cost $190.
Regular classes still cost $190 including all materials.

Learn to make beautifully silver-smithed jewelry!

Master Silversmith Levent Oz will guide you through all the steps to creating professional crafted jewelry. The classes are 2 hours for four consecutive weeks. All materials and tools included. Class sizes are small, no more than 8 students at a time.

Basic

The first class helps you master the use of the jeweler’s saw, filing and polishing. The second project takes you further in silversmithing as you learn how to design a ring.This requires you to learn how to measure your ring shank, design a bezel for the stone, set the stone in the bezel, and how to properly solder the ring shank and setting of the stone together. This will teach you important techniques in soldering and further your sawing and filing skills.
