I’d be very interested in hearing what EVERYONE has to say about
the jewelry schools they have experienced.
As a high school teacher with a first year jewelry program, I am
beginning to get inquiries from students about what is out
there. I can do a search to see WHO has programs, but that
tells me nothing about the quality of that program. I went to
University of North Texas and had a wonderful experience there.
It was heavy into design and exploring many metalworking
techniques, but in an undergraduate program it does not give the
opportunity to explore any technique in much depth. Of course,
there were techniques that I enjoyed more than others and I
tended to practice-practice-practice those…
I have a senior who is going on to the jewelry repair program at
Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas. I have heard good things
about the school, but never heard directly from someone who has
I’d really like to know, and want if possible to compile the
comments into a form that I could share with my students.
Thanks in advance for your input.
