What our students say


"My 14-year-old son and I took Ayaka’s jewelry class last week.
My son likes arts and loves using tools to make artworks, and I thought he would enjoy Ayaka’s class while making his own ring.
He chose silver, and I went with golden brass. Both pounded the metal to make the surface have some effect. He had his ring had tarnished finish to make it’s color blackish. We liked our own ring very much! Very earthy, and It feels very natural wearing it.
Ayaka is such a great instructor! She was very attentive during the class and demonstrated each process in a user-friendly way."
