Welcome to Jewelry Engraving Basics, a comprehensive course designed to introduce students to the captivating world of jewelry engraving. This course places a strong emphasis on sharpening and preparation of gravers.

This course is perfect if you've been curious about how to use powered gravers, but have been daunted by the price tag and how to use them! 

The goal of this course is to empower and guide the curious engraver to create intricate and personalized designs that they can incorporate into their pieces. A combination of exercises and projects will be used.
