Ever wonder what makes pearls so precious?

What will I learn in this class?
Put your knowledge from Pearl Academy: Session 1 into use as you practice jewelry design techniques on your way to making your own stunning earrings, a brooch or both. Learn how to craft a piece of jewelry from the ground up while working with settings in a variety of metals.

Who teaches this class?
Dori Chitayat, managing director of Amit Trading, has decades of experience in Japanese gemology. After learning the particulars of Akoya and other pearl varieties from his father and Amit founder Zvi Chitayat, Dori added diamonds and other precious stones into Amit’s global catalogue.
