Metalsmithing Classes taught by Dan Balk
America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost. Dan offers his classes in an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, Dan believes it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student. - Dan Balk

Dan Balk Jewelry is for sale and on exhibit at the gallery.

Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. This allows Dan complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.
