JEWELRY SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY

Portland Jewelry Academy takes the foundation of learning seriously. A bad foundation on a house effects the whole house. A poor education for the foundation of your jewelry education will effect all you create. At Portland Jewelry Academy we teach not just how to make beautiful jewelry but why the metal and tools behave as they do. The jewelry projects at Portland Jewelry Academy have been developed to teach specific core skills that build on each other taking full advantage of every hour of class to maximize skills learned and be able to apply these skills to what ever you create.
