Production + Making Multiples: 

Whether you are creating a piece of jewelry 3 times, or 300 times, this class will teach you how to create multiples quickly, efficiently, and enjoyably. Creating well-thought out constant designs which are finished consistently will ensure the success of a production line.

This class will cover how to make guides and templates, time-saving tips & tools, working in batches, mass finishing, and creating masters for casting. Techniques cover both fabricating, casting, and contract labor, as well as when to buy findings or hand-made parts. Students will learn how to manage time, stay on task, track materials, and organize their studio into an efficient workplace.

This class is directed toward studio artists, goldsmiths, jewelry designers, and budding jewelers. If you don't consider yourself a 'production jeweler' this is a great class for you. Jewelers with established production lines will benefit from Luana's tried & true lessons from 12 years at the production bench.
