  • The sixteen month Jewelry Making and Repair at North Bennet Street School emphasizes fabrication repair and stone setting techniques. This course is designed to graduate the competent jewelers who have a thorough understanding of the characteristics of metal and stones and have the skills to create and repair jewelry. Assigned projects focus on making traditional forms of jewelry from flat and wire stock. This requires the use of all techniques of metal forming, soldering and finishing also used in repair work. Graduates of this course are initially employed in trade and retail shops working in various aspects of the trade such as repair of fine jewelry custom design and fabrication and stone setting.
  • Philosophy: North Bennet Street School has been training people for employment since 1885. It pioneered the concept of intensive instruction in a classroom/shop settingfor the sole purpose of learning a trade. Our fundamental mission remains to train people to go to work and earn a living in their field of training.
