About MJS

Miami Jewelry School is an established, licensed institute of learning.
For over 31 years we have trained students of all ages to become jewelers.
We proudly see many of our students continuing on and establishing themselves and being part of this wonderful profession.
There are many schools available for teaching you the basics of jewelry making, and they’ll do a credible job.
However in jewelry making, learning the basics is only one aspect. It’s the skill, expertise and proficiency of the instructor that makes a crucial difference.

European Trained Master Instructor
What sets us apart from any otherjewelry school?
Your instructor: Marc Thurn, Master Jeweler.
We don’t use the term “master” lightly. Unlike here in the States, having the title “Master” in Europe is a
credential that must be earned - through long years of apprenticeship, study, and rigorous, strenuous testing.
In Germany, where the finest jewelers are found, becoming a master jeweler is more than a “job” – it’s a
lifelong commitment to one’s craft. Studying under the direction of such master craftsmen is considered
an honor.

One-On-One Personal Instruction
Every student at the Miami Jewelry School learns directly from our director, Master Jeweler Marc Thurn.
This is important to know. You’ll be experiencing firsthand the techniques, methods, and processes as
they are taught in Old World traditions. Standards of excellence and skill unmatched and unrivaled by any other system of learning.

Excellence First
Miami Jewelry School believes in teaching with excellence, this is why we don't offer jewelry workshops.
We feel that such a intricate trade cannot be learned in a day, or even a week. It takes time, practice and trial and error to become a real goldsmith. We respect the trade and believe that training professionals should not be rushed.
Our facilities are also a representation of excellence. Our students train with the best and latest jewelry tools, equipment and technology.
Our benches are fully equipped· and resemble a professional environment.
