Brooklyn Metal Works is pleased to announce the launch of FOCUS, a Certificate Program for aspiring jewelry artists. This program has two main routes for jewelers to accomplish their goals. The Bench Certificate is geared towards the jeweler pursuing fine jewelry with the goal of working in the jewelry industry. The Creative Certificate is designed for those who want to be more self directed as an artist/independent jeweler. BKMW values both approaches to jewelry making and design, with specific curriculum requirements to compliment the different needs of all jewelers. 

Becoming a dedicated student at Brooklyn Metal Works has multiple benefits in addition to the value of our coursework.

+ Access to a large professional community of jewelers and artists both in residence and from across the globe.

+ Take part in a dynamic studio environment.
