Which class is right for you?

It takes a commitment to excellence, a solid foundation of skills, a willingness to continually learn and the talents of excellent craftsmanship to secure a solid position as a working Jeweler.

You can learn such skills and develop your talents at New Approach School for Jewelers; we excel in helping you discover and perfect your skills.

If you are new to the industry, our Bench Comprehensive 5 day workshop is a great starting point. This course is specifically designed for students interested in learning to make and repair jewelry. This class is an ideal way to discover the foundational skills required in making jewelry, as well as familiarizing yourself with the tools and terminology to ensure success in our Intermediate and Advanced classes as you progress. Many students elect to take Bench Comprehensive and Stone Setting Comprehensive as a two-week starter program into making jewelry. Our Bench Jeweler Comprehensive covers torch theory in detail, and our Stone Setting Comprehensive is an in-depth workshop on many popular stone settings.

We have many fast-paced, intense and information packed classes to help you increase your efficiency, understanding and techniques. Our Graduate Bench Jeweler program is specifically designed to help you learn the art of making and repairing jewelry, as well as advanced stone setting techniques and platinum fabrication. This program covers an immense scope of material, from foundational bench jeweler skills such as sawing and soldering skillfully to beginning through advanced professional stone setting, introduction to ornamental hand-engraving, techniques for working with sterling, gold, platinum and other materials, designing, constructing and setting your own designs, with fabrication from raw materials to technically challenging and flawless creation of a three stone basket ring in sterling, and again in platinum as you progress through the program.
