Fredricka Kulicke School Of Jewelry Art - Classes Review from Parsippany, New Jersey

I have taken many jewelry design and fabrication classes in both NY and NJ and have finally found exactly the right teacher. Ms. Kulicke has over 40yrs experience in making handmade 22kt gold and other fine metals jewelry. Her vast knowledge of Ancient and Historic jewelry designs and constuction are surpassed by none. The studio has everything to get a student started in Hand fabrication of jewelry. The students are all Serious jewelers. Each person works at their own pace and encouraged to develope their own style .

Amazing learning experience at Kulicke School of Jewelry Art....

I have taken many years of jewelry design classes at various schools both in NYC as well as NJ. I have had the BEST experience at the Kulicke School of Jewelry Art! After finding myself unable to demonstrate the basic bench skills after attending YEARS of jewelry classes at the Visual Arts Center of NJ. Yet, after only after 3 months with Freddie, I'm feeling comfortable with my jeweler's skills in soldering, drilling, and setting stones. I even set up my very own home jeweler's bench! Freddie Kulicke is an amazing teacher with so much to offer her students!

Kulicke School of Jewelry Art

After signing up for jewelry courses at the Kulicke School of Jewelry Art, I was less than dissatisfied. Multiple timely payments were made to this so called school, and we did not receive the classes or educational information that were promised to us. Attempting to rectify the situation personally has proven to be futile. We attempted to make contact via the methods listed on their website, but were unsuccessful. I would not recommend these courses to anyone interested in jewelry art. You'd probably learn more from those Crayola home jewelry kits. Save your time and your money. Do not sign up for these classes.

It is unfortunate that Niner29 was unable to see what she could have learned at the Kulicke Jewelry School. Had she really read the schools website or done some research on metalsmithing, she would have realized this is hardly a Crayola class.

If you are serious and mature, you can learn an amazing art form by Fredricka Kulicke, who is a dedicated teacher and an encyclopedia of knowledge.

As a student for the past 3 years, with no previous jewelry experience, I would like to say to anyone who is interested in serious metalsmithing, this is an amazing environment to be in. You will learn individually at your own pace and your first projects will introduce you to the many facets of creating silver/gold jewelry and you will proudly wear your projects!

First Niner29 is presenting an incident that is totally false. The writer s facts are totally fabricated.

I personnally witnessed this young lady interact with Ms Kulicke. she refused to take direction and refused to be instructed in a series of projects because she did'nt like the pieces. Even after I perzonnally explained to her that the jewelry pieces she was being taught were about learning techniques that later as she progressed she will be able to use these skills to make whatever she wanted. Neither she nor her ????

finacee every asked for refunds until 1/2 of the session was already over. The school website and applications clearly state no refunds. These people took the tuition completely back from Ms Kulicke's account 30 days after it cleared her acct.

They were rude and insulting to Ms Kulicke , we her students and the school.

The school website clearly states the details of what we study and the No Refund policy. I myself continously attempted to encourage this student learn the skills being taught but she told me theclasses were boring to her.

Myself and others were witness to the above consumer's complaints and this is a revenge review by a very nasty, uncooperative, immature student. This student absolutely sat there and refused to do any of the projects that are in the curriculum saying she didn't like any of them. This school is a very serious goldsmithing school. Pieces are taught in a certain order so students can learn the necessary skills. It is not a hobby school for children.

This person needs to grow up and realize that she did make a few lovely pieces despite her attitude and that her husband refused to pay for even the classes she took.

The Kulicke school is a wonderful, caring supportive environment in which to learn a very involved career oriented set of metalsmithing techniques.

Please read between the lines here - this is a very biased mean spirited comment and you could never learn the amazing techniques taught in this school from a self teaching "kit" as she suggest.
