This is a comprehensive short course aimed at individuals who plan to enter the jewelry trade. It teaches many of the same skills as in the comprehensive course but concentrates on the basic skills. Students are taught in small groups in four major areas of study: fundamental jewelry techniques, stone setting, wax modeling and casting/molds, and decorative processes. No previous experience is necessary.
Once successfully finishing this course, students will be qualified to work at entry level jobs in the jewelry trade, where the working environment demands a diversity of basic skills.
