Would you like to expand your metalsmithing know how in a delightful, but meaningful way? Learn new techniques, tricks, and an engineering point of view in the fabrication of your work? And then be challenged to apply all of this new perspective to the design and fabrication of your personal jewelry design vocabulary? How about learning how to price your work for maximum salability, and with a profit margin by developing a marketing strategy? This next level master class will deliver all of this and more in an intensive five-day class.

THOMAS MANN has been making a living as a contemporary American metalsmith and jewelry designer for 48+ years, with humble beginnings in a pivotal high school jewelry making class.

It’s been a long and interesting journey (which participants will learn through slide presentations), starting as a professional in the early 70’s. Since then, he has employed over 600 people, 450 of whom he learned jewelry making techniques essential to his Techno-Romantic® design system.

Additionally Tom has been teaching hands-on and entrepreneurial workshops around the world every year since 1989. Many of the participants in these workshops have gone on to launch their own professional practice or enjoy a serious hobby profitable!
