The Benlolo Jewelry Studio in New York was founded in 2003 offering jewelry making and jewelry design classes

In 2003, David founded The Benlolo Jewelry Studio to pursue his longstanding interest in sharing with others the deep knowledge and skills he amassed over his long career. For the past decade, he has helped hundreds of students make their own beautiful creations while developing skills in jewelry making and design. Many have gone on to launch their own successful jewelry collections.

A unique learning environment that helps students maximize their potential

David decided that to teach most effectively, a different approach was needed than that offered at most bottom-line driven schools where larger class sizes limit personal attention and where rigid curricula don’t take into account students’ individual interests or needs.

His goal was to create a unique learning environment where students can quickly achieve their full potential. The average class size is four to six (4-6) so each student gets maximum attention. In addition, each student’s program is customized taking into account their skill level, personal goals and projects of interest. By allowing flexibility in start dates and frequency of classes, individual scheduling needs and budgets can be met.
