Training

Welding & Soldering

In 2015, I started my training to become a Metalsmith at Liloveve Jewelry School in Brooklyn, NY.


Stone Setting
In 2017, when I moved to Los Angeles I took a course to learn how to set stones at Precious Metals Arts in Santa Monica, CA. It taught me how to use burs to cut seats for flush and bead settings.

Wax Carving
In 2019, I wanted to get more custom and creative with my work so I took a course in Wax Carving at August Axel in Venice Beach, CA. I learned the basics of carving ring shapes.
