Small classes. Lots of help.
Classes at Silvera Jewelry School are small, 9 students max, with lots of hands-on-help and critique to accelerate your learning. Demonstrations are magnified live on a flat screen television so that everyone can see and understand the process. Imagine seeing solder flow and melt into a join in HD clarity.
