(Tampa, Florida) Singing Stone Gallery is proud to present Silver Jewelry Making Classes taught by artist and designer goldsmith, Dan Balk. Singing Stone is enrolling beginner students, hobbyists, and the artistically adventurous to hand make jewelry in sterling silver in our 1-Day classes. Students discover new abilities to design and create their own piece of jewelry under the guidance of a professional jeweler.
Singing Stone owner, Dan Balk, has opened his jewelry studio for basic silversmithing classes 6 days a week, Sunday through Friday at 10:00 AM. No experience is needed. Reservations are required. Each class is approximately 4 hours long.
In the jewelry making classes, students will develop hands-on education in hand fabrication using raw materials. Students will gain awareness and practice in shop safety, design, creating silver sheets and wires, metal cutting, soldering and forming, and stone setting. Dan’s classes focus on projects that students can complete and develop confidence.
Goldsmith and artist, Dan Balk, designs and fabricates every piece of jewelry from raw materials from his studio in Tampa, Florida. Dan’s expanding jewelry collections are for sale and on exhibit at The Singing Stone. 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.
Singing Stone Gallery and Studio features Dan Balk Jewelry, American contemporary craft, and silversmithing instruction. Gallery events and studio classes are held at The Singing Stone on 8 Avenue and 19 Street in Ybor City at 1903 N. 19 St. Tampa, Florida 33605.
