At Brooklyn Charm, you are the designer. With hundreds of chains and thousands of charms, each design is unique. Whether we are assembling a piece of jewelry for you or you are taking the supplies home to make your own jewelry: you are guaranteed to walk away with an individualized creation.
Brooklyn Charm opened its storefront in 2010 in the heart of the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, NY. It also operates pop up booths in various New York arts-and-crafts festivals and markets throughout the year.
A combination of metals, charms, and visionary thinking allowed Brooklyn Charm to reimagine itself from an internet supply business to an interactive jewelry store. Over the last two years, the Williamsburg business has been featured in television and print media because of its unique method of asking patrons to design and build their own jewelry. The staff members help customers pick through the vast array of chains and charms to create custom one-of-a-kind pieces. The store also offers many exceptional hand-made accessories and hosts jewelry-making classes often.
A large portion of the store is dedicated to rare materials found nowhere else in New York, such as: taxidermy, rare gemstones, materials and oddities from around the world, as well as vintage dead stock materials that are no longer in production. There is an implied guarantee at Brooklyn Charm: customers will leave with a completely customized piece of jewelry.
It was amazing! teacher is so patient and friendly, like a big sis! I enjoyed the class and hope to do more in future. Useful class and I had fun. :)
The instructor was excellent. Patient and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
Excellent instructor, venue, materials, information, etc. Learned basic but valuable skills. Highly recommend.
Tavia was excellent. She explained the process, and then gave helped when needed. I look forward to going back.
The best class I ever took
As soon as my friend and I walked into Brooklyn Charm for our first experience, the instructor asked the group "Who missed the class last week and is here for a makeup?" It turns out a woman who missed the class a week before had the flu and had to cancel. The instructor then rudely went on telling the woman how "She walked all the way here to see no one came for her class"...... then demanded that the woman had to pay a ten dollar fee. Right then and there I almost walked out and I wish I had because it just got worse from there out. The whole class the instructor talked about herself and her political views which was extremely uncomfortable. She then demanded everyone should learn by "watching" her do anything from 5-10 steps on a ring and remember exactly how to do it afterward. She did not take into consideration that people have different learning styles. She also ended the class early. It was an extremely uncomfortable setting and the instructor was one of the most unprofessional people i've ever met. I would not go back.
yes, the instructor knows her craft and is pleasant but i did not find it to be a professional atmosphere for a few reasons. 1 -it was held in a small-dark storage like basement - if this is affiliated with BCharm it leaves me questioning who thought this was a good idea to have a class down there. 2-actual class could have been done in an 1 hour 3-with a 2 hour window- after group instruction work with each person one-on-one, there is plenty of time to walk us through the steps... 4-and please, keep off-topic conversation 'light' and at a minimum...it was awkward a couple of times especially when depression was brought up...at length. i'd hope it was an off day for her. i want to learn more and will take other classes but i will not be going back here.
Tavia is awesome! We created a ring and a pendant and I've gotten so many compliments on them. I'll be able to make my own too in the future. Simple, fun technique.
such a great class. The instructor was very patient and gave clear instructions.
The instructor was amazing, super down to earth and showed such a love for her craft. She was very patient and kind, and did not mind going over anything. The store was super convenient to shop for jewelry making items. Can't wait for the next class.
