Generator’s jewelry making in Burlington, VT is home to beginning metalsmiths as well as professional jewelry artists.

Jewelry making includes the use of silver, brass, copper, as well as gold. Members also have access to other specialized equipment throughout Generator to make jewelry elements that they then assemble in the jewelry workshop.

Gain Access

1. Get certified

Generator members need to go through one of Generator’s safety trainings and/or classes before gaining access to our facility.

We suggest getting trained before becoming a member so that once you join, you can get right to work (instead of joining and then waiting for your desired tool trainings to come up on our calendar).

Those with previous experience may be eligible for an Experienced User Assessment.

Get Certified

2. Become a Generator member

Once you’re certified in your equipment of choice, you can become a Generator member and access the space and equipment during our open hours (except for certain holidays and during Generator’s class times, marked on a shared calendar).

All kinds of silver, brass, copper, and gold jewelry, of course. Members also use the wood shop, laser cutters, 3D printers, and other equipment throughout Generator to make jewelry elements that they then assemble in the jewelry workshop.
