You know there's a jewelry artist inside of you. As a kid, you made daisy chain necklaces using handpicked flowers. In middle school, you made friendship bracelets -- neon, of course -- for all of your friends. Jewelry making was super easy back then! A little imagination, a couple of knots, and …voila! As an adult, you still find yourself longing to create your own wearable gems, but you need help navigating the world of tools, supplies and techniques.

In this class, I'll take you from amateur to artist. You'll learn the basics, build and organize the perfect starter kit, experiment with common repair techniques, and, by the end of the class, leave sporting your very own statement necklace. Bye bye expensive boutique jewelry, hello DIY! My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Hello everyone, my name is Danial Asaria and I am a professional chess player that has traveled across the world competing in tournaments representing the U.S. After achieving the master title at age 11, I have become a 5-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION and am currently the NUMBER ONE 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. In addition, I have played some of the best in the world including world champion Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura. My peak USCF rating is 2390 and my FIDE rating is 2340 awarding me the titles of national master and FIDE master. (top 5% in the world) I founded the Asaria School of Chess and have taught for three years in chess camps across the state with students ranging from 5-85 years old. One of my biggest teaching accomplishments is assisting one of my students to go from #117 in the country to #13 in the country (gained 500 rating points) for their age group in a matter of 5 months! In addition, one of my students went from 1700-2000+ in less than a ...

Thanks Danial! That was a great first lesson. Looking forward to more.
Aidan C.
My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.
Dean
As a high rated 1500+ player, Danial was able to teach many new things about my openings and how I ca imrpove. Great coach!
