About Us

About Us

 

Silvera Jewelry School is located in Berkeley, Ca. SJS is run by teachers/owners Anat Silvera and Joe Silvera. We offer evening, one day and multi-day workshops in techniques, like soldering, stone setting, enameling and lost wax casting.

Class sizes are small with a 9 student maximum. We emphasize good craftsmanship, safe technique, and green, home studio friendly equipment and chemicals. We use video cameras to project and magnify the live demonstrations on a large tv screen so that all the students get up close and detailed views of the process.
