Jewelry Benches and Tools for Students

Our studio classroom is fully equipped, with jewelry benches and tools, like torches, flex shafts and more, for each student to use - no need to haul your own tools to class! Plus we have more tools to share, like polishing motors, casting equipment, etc. It's a great space to work in and the convenience of not having to pack and unpack all of your own equipment is a big plus.

Our studio classroom is spacious, with high ceilings and lots of natural light from 3 skylights. The light is wonderful and adds a lot of charm to the studio. There is a kitchen area, sofa for relaxing and tables for dining.

Adjacent to the kitchen area is our store, with tools, books and dvds for sale. We also have class samples on display and jewelry for sale.

We welcome interested students to stop by and visit SJS. Call us to arrange an appointment.
