2009 Recap #3: Ralph Goldstein, Master Jeweler

Note: This post was originally published on May 19, 2009

UCLA Extension did a profile of my jewelry teacher a few months ago and they finally finished the video:

Ralph is teaching us handmade jewelry making techniques that are dying out. Most jewelry these days is carved in wax then cast. We make jewelry entirely by hand, even down to melting pure silver and gold with alloys. I absolutely love it.

  1. That was really cool! They should have shown you and all the pieces you’ve made though. Then again, I’m biased. Seems like a really amazing class.
