Susan is terrific! She is very attentive, personable and her prices are very reasonable. Most important, she is very knowledgeable about jewelry making and repair. So happy to have found her on Thumbtack. 40 years of accumulated jewelry needing repair are now getting new life.Jun 21, 2015Verified
Susan is patient and knowledgeable. Have taken classes in jewelry making for a long time from her and still learning new useful techniques. You can also get tools and other supplies from her and learn how to use them. She teaches simple to more advanced jewelry making techniques in a pleasant learning setting and will answer any questions one might have. If there is a technique you want to learn let her know she will teach you how to do. Susan's classes achieve a 5 star rating.Jun 10, 2013
I love Susan Ryza Jewelry class and all the unique and different projects she provides for us. It is wonderful to get together with other creative people and make these designs together. Being creative helps be productive and stimulates my brain. Thank youJun 10, 2013

- What types of customers have you worked with?I teach weekly classes at Emeritus College (part of Santa Monica College), and I also teach through Santa Monica College's Continuing Education program. My most recent classes have been Kumihimo, Wire Rings, Chain Maille, Making Chains & Clasp from Wire, and Bead & Jewelry Basics. In my home studio classes, I have recently taught Sheet Metal Stamping & Texturing, Metal Patina, Viking Knit Bracelets & Necklaces, Spool Knit Necklaces & Leather/Chain Weaving. I usually teach jewelry-making techniques through the completion of specific projects, and my project list includes about 240 different techniques. Please let me know what particular type of jewelry-making methods you are interested in.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?The recent Metal-Stamping & Viking Knit classes I've taught at my home studio have been so popular that I've had to break them into 2 or 3 groups rather than the original single class I had planned.
