  • $149 for a jewelry-making course for two (a $400 value)<p>

Jewelry artisans guide groups of up to six through one of four hands-on courses with one-on-one assistance, resulting in unique pieces that students take home. The focus of each course ranges from the creation of stackable rings to the exploration of pendant making to the discovery of silversmithing. Sessions are held weekly, ranging from one five-hour course to three three-hour courses; classes with multiple sessions must be redeemed over consecutive weeks.

Materials are included for all classes, but some classes require a casting fee that is not included in this Groupon and runs $10 to $20 on average, depending on the size of the piece. See the class page for specifics and times.<p>

The Bloomfield School

At The Bloomfield School, instructors Kerrie Yeung and Melissa J. Tyson love the process of jewelry making as much as the intricate outcomes. With experience at home and abroad crafting and displaying their own work, they have amassed a grab bag of tips and techniques capable of invigorating a simple ring design or transforming a pocketful of beads and molten silver into an elegant pendant. Together, they use their skills to expand the jewelry-crafting community, hosting classes that instill an understanding of how to take a design from a wax idea to a metal reality. Yet they aren't interested in letting students walk away with only surface knowledge. Their intensive courses delve into the theory and collective know-how to create competent artisans capable of expanding on their projects in the future and re-creating their pieces without traveling back in time.
