Singing Stone is enrolling beginner students, hobbyists, and the artistically adventurous to hand make jewelry in sterling silver. 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. One day classes are offered 6 days a week, Sunday through Friday at 10:00 am in Dan's studio. No experience is needed. Reservations are required. Each class is approximately 4.5 hours long.
Students learn about jewelry in Dan Balk's fully equipped jewelry studio. Classes are small enabling students to master skills and techniques. The first class is $225.00 per person and includes all supplies. Students will go home with their finsished piece.
In the basic jewelry making class, 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. Dan Balk's private classes, wedding band making and couples class, include the option of creating custom rings or pendants in gold or silver metals.
America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost. Dan offers his classes in an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, Dan believes it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student.

Dan Balk Jewelry is for sale and on exhibit at the gallery. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own Sterling Silver, 18K and 14K gold alloys that he 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. This allows Dan complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.
