Drew Hadley

Class Schedule

At a young age, Drew was inspired by jewelry and gemstones. As a Senior in high school he held odd jobs in a dental lab with his father, but quickly found nothing would assuage his passion for jewelry. At this time, Drew searched for an avenue to become a successful jeweler.

Drew pursued his studies with an impressive list of instructors and schools all around the United States including the Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology, the Gemology Institute of America, The New Approach School for Jewelers, Kate Wolf, Jason Marchiafava, and Chris Ploof. Drew also sought out and studied with international Master Stone Setter, Alexander Sidorov, in Belgium. 

These courses gave Drew the ability to practice and perfect a myriad of skills including wax carving, mokume gane, advance stone setting, hand engraving, hydraulic forming, CAD programming and 3D printing.  

Drew worked for J. Nelson Designs to create one-of-a-kind designs and skillfully generate custom fabrication. Drew then went on to work for Tiffany & Co as a diamond setter with a perfect Quality Assurance record.

Drew Hadley now teaches alongside Blaine Lewis in many of the core classes at New Approach School for Jewelers; he is instrumental in teaching fundamental concepts and stone setting skills to students in the NASJ programs.

Drew is a natural teacher, with a quick sense of humor that puts students at ease. His impressive background, expertise and talent translates into a creative, well-rounded and popular instructor. 

Drew is happily married to his wife, Presley Hadley.  They share their lives with their two dachshunds, Finn and Franklin.
