What you'll do

We will meet for a three-hour class at my private studio in the East Village, an artistic and creative area of Manhattan. You will have a unique experience in an artistic atmosphere. I will show you my personal work, and then, with my guidance, you will start making jewelry by cutting metal using a saw and stamping letters inside a ring. If you don’t have enough experience, I will help with the soldering. Then, we will make a stone setting for a 2mm diamond. You can select from four different colors. We will end by polishing and setting the diamond. Since you can stamp letters inside the ring, you can customize it with your initials, a short message, or a special date.
Other things to note
Since I provide all the jewelry-making tools and materials, you don't need to bring anything of your own.

This was such a wonderful experience. Being able to learn how to make your own jewelry and embedding a stone was so fun. Ayaka was such an amazing host it made the experience very easy and fun to do. I highly recommend booking with her.

We went to make our engagement rings, I made his and he made mine. We love them and loved the experience! Although pricey I absolutely recommend it, it’s awesome and Ayaka is very helpful, patient, and sweet.

I have been wanting to learn about making jewelry for a while. I took this class to gauge my interest and see what I could do. Ayaka was a great instructor, allowing me to work on what I could as a super beginner, and helping when more expert hands were needed, and explained about the process and answered any questions I had. I am looking forward to taking more jewelry classes in the future. This experience is a great way to be creative, try something new, and make something memorable for you or a loved one.
