Silver jewelry making classes are taught by artist and designer goldsmith, Dan Balk. Dan is inviting couples to hand make jewelry in sterling silver. Participants discover new abilities to design and create jewelry under the guidance of a professional jeweler.

This course is a great opportunity for partners to explore each others creative and artistic side as each makes a piece of jewelry for each other. Participants may customize their experience by each creating a one-of-a-kind pendant or ring. This course concludes with complementary offerings of champagne or wine, as well as fruit and chocolate.

Dan Balk, has opened his jewelry studio for basic silversmithing classes 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Reservations are required. Each class is approximately 4 hours long.

Dan is offering a Spring Discount for $300.00 per couple, it is a savings of $150.00 off of the regular price of $450.00. The sale offer expires 4/30/17. A deposit of $100.00 will reserve your date. The supplies are included. Gemstones may be added for an additional fee. Couples will go home with their finished jewelry.

Students learn about jewelry in Dan Balk's fully equipped studio. Each Couples Class is private, enabling each participant to practice skills and techniques. No experience is needed. Classes are one-on-one.

In the Couples Jewelry Class, participants will develop hands-on education in hand fabrication using raw materials. Partners will gain awareness and practice in shop safety, design, creating silver sheets and wires, soldering and forming, and metal cutting. Dan's classes focus on projects that students can complete and develop confidence.

"America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost." Dan offers his classes, "In an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, I believe it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student." -Dan Balk

Metalsmith and artist Dan Balk, designs and fabricates every piece of jewelry from raw materials from his studio in Tampa, Florida. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own sterling silver, 18K, and 14K alloys that he then fashions, mills, forges, fuses, and brazes into miniature sculptures for personal adornment. Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. Dan has complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.
