Jewelry & Fine Metals Studio

Jewelry Making


Open studio provides members and guests a collaborative environment to pursue self-directed work, whether it's finishing projects from classes or work on independent projects.

Tools and basic shop supplies are available, and a safety monitor is always on duty. Open studio does not include instruction like a class.


Registration is required for all members and guests. Registration for Open Studio closes the night before at 11:59 p.m. (Sunday at 11:59 pm for Monday evening OS, Tuesday 11:59 pm for Wednesday afternoon OS.)

There are seven spots available for general studio use and three spots for using the lapidary equipment. You can specify which type when you register.
