School of Handcrafted Jewelry & Metal Art


Metalworks SF and Macchiarini Design

Over sixty years of metal work experience brought into intimate class settings for beginners and experienced jewelry makers.

Welcome to Metalworkssf! We are located in the heart of North Beach in one of the longest ongoing metal studios in all of North America, Macchiarini Design Jewelry. The school was founded by educator, and jeweler Emma Macchiarini in 2015. This is a woman run business, and one of the only jewelry schools in the Bay Area with this distinction. Metalworkssf is the product of the experience created by three generations of metalsmithing at Macchiarini Design Jewelry. The school and the studio/gallery operate together within the space on Grant Ave.

This is a wonderful place to experience the joy of hand fabrication, casting, and metalwork. We encourage a hands on, somatic approach to Jewelry making, which echoes a not so distant past of traditional craft. We are interested in creating crafts people who are familiar with the activity and process of the bench Jeweler. We do not have a matriculation process, or certificate, but by being in this space, students will gain access to a tradition of creating wearable art, and the opportunity to stretch artistic boundaries of Jewelry craft.

We welcome people of all genders, nationalities, ethnic backgrounds, social classes, sexual orientation, and varying ability. Students will be treated with respect and welcomed to the space. You are safe here.
