Hi all. I would like to ask if anyone has taken the Bench Jeweler I
class at New Approach School in Virginia Beach, VA. I am enrolled
for the class in March and would like to know what to expect. Is the
class worth the money? How much do you learn? I am new to the
jewelry field and I would love to get into jewelry repair. There is
a great need for it where I live. I have learned a few things on my
own like simple ring sizing, some simple stone setting. My soldering
skills are getting better, but I still have loads to learn. I have
enjoyed reading the posts on this site, and have learned a great
deal. I am pleased to find a place where jewelers are willing to
help each other. I have noticed that some jewelers are very
hush-hush about the business. I guess they fear competition.
Anyway, I would like to gain some insight/feedback on this class from
anyone who has participated in it.
Thanks so much.
