Jewelry Lessons

Books like "Jewelry  Concepts and Technology" by Oppi Untracht and "The Theory and Practice of Goldsmithing" by Erhard Brepohl, Tim McCreight and translator Charles Lewton-Brain will become your jewlery making source. These books are absolutely essential for the immense amount of jewelry knowledge and techniques that can be referenced.

By mastering a tool and using it effectively you're developing a skill. These skills can take years to master. An enormously gratifying challenge about metal-smithing is that you never stop learning.

There are various ways of learning to make jewelry.

Europe and some USA workshops  have an apprentice system whereby you are taught for a minimum of 2 to 5 years in a practical working environment. This way is an all round method method of learning  and includes disciplines like repairs, polishing, setting, fabrication, casting etc, etc. The advantage is that you get to know how a Jewelry Manufacturing Workshop is run on a daily basis in the commercial sector.

Another  option is to study at a technical college for a degree.

These options are full time commitments which might not suit a person who is in a transition phase of changing careers with limited time to learn. The option there is to learn selective segments of Jewelry Lessons. Find a suitable jewelry school in your local area that offers jewelry lessons to suit your interests and schedule.

And finally there is the option of being self-taught. The internet is a great tool for you. There are many Jewelry Making Tutorials available. It requires a lot of enthusiasm, self-discipline and the ability of finding solutions that work for you. These attributes are commonly found in jewelry students. It is highly recommended to follow   and subscribe to the forum  where you will find a wealth of information particularly in the archives section and can post your questions.
