Description

Learn the basics of jewelry making. We will focus on sawing, filing, sanding, soldering, texturing, annealing, stamping, polishing, and design. Students will learn the properties of metals like copper, brass, and silver and make a sterling silver ring.

All students must review and adhere to all of The Crucible's Health and Safety Guidelines to best protect our students and staff during this public health crisis. All students ages 12 and up must bring proof of vaccination to your first day of class. If your class is cancelled by The Crucible due to updated county guidance, we are pleased to offer you a refund for a class or session that cannot run.
For adult classes, youth ages 12+ are welcome to take any adult class for ages 16+, if the parent/guardian is registered in the same class with them. The only exception is for classes in the Glass Blowing Department, where youth must be 14+ to register with their parent/guardian. Adult classes marked 18+ are only for adults over the age of 18. For youth classes, the age requirements stated on the class are generally non-negotiable, unless a student has taken multiple prior classes with us and gets approval from Crucible staff and the class instructor for an exception.
Students who withdraw at least seven days prior to the first scheduled session of a class will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable $50 registration fee. No portion of tuition will be refunded or transferred if a withdrawal is made less than seven days before the class start date. Classes are subject to cancellation; and in the event that The Crucible cancels a class, students receive information about refund, credit, or transfer. If you are interested in taking a class, register early so we know you're interested! There are no make-up classes. No exceptions. While it is infrequent, instructors are subject to change. See all of The Crucible's Policies and Resources.
At The Crucible, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames. Layers are encouraged as the studio can be very cold or very hot. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed. The CDC has a guide to acceptable cloth masks that help prevent the spread of infection. Bandannas will not be accepted inside The Crucible.
The Crucible is conveniently located at 1260 7th Street, Oakland, CA, just two blocks east of the West Oakland BART station. There is a student parking lot with spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. The lot fills up quickly, and we encourage students to bike or take public transit to class. For weekend or weeklong classes, there are great places to grab food around the area, including at 7th West and Mandela Grocery Cooperative, as well as a microwave on-site at The Crucible for students who wish to warm up packed lunches.

tracey nelsenHello creative community! I work with metal to make anything from tiny, delicate jewelry to large-scale interactive sculptures. My artistic inspirations revolve around my midwest roots; I feel the elements of the Earth mixed with chemically created processes have a distinct relationship that can be shown through metal arts. My background is in Fine Arts from the University of Minnesota and I have exhibited work in Minnesota, the Bay Area, New York, and at Burning Man with Flaming Lotus Girls in 2016. I have worked professionally in education, the arts, was the Team Build Program Manager here at The Crucible, and am currently an Admissions Director at an EdTech startup based in SF. I love inspiring people to live out their passions, dreams, and creative outlets and I look forward to seeing you in the welding and jewelry departments. Feel free to send me a note at [email protected]!
