I have been in the jewelry industry since 2000. I'm an international jewelry artist and Gold/Silver smith from Anaheim, CA. I teach jewelry making courses at various exhibitions and art organizations worldwide, including Tucson Jewelry & Gem Shows, Gem Faire in Costa Mesa, and in Europe. I enjoy experimenting with different and new techniques. My work and jewelry have been exhibited in jewelry and handicraft exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany, China, Turkey and Iran. As a child, I started goldsmithing; and I hold a college major in gem cutting from a university in Iran. I have also graduated from Gemological Institute of America in diamond essentials.
My specialization is in Fine Jewelry and Gemology.

I have taken one on one lessons from Milad for almost a year and I have mastered so many techniques that I never dreamed I would be able to do. Milad is very patient, has amazing skills, is a wonderful teacher, and has given me so much confidence in my jewelry making abilities. He has elevated my skills exponentially. Nothing compares to the experience of learning privately from a master metalsmith and jewelry designer. Milad's lessons are a bargain when you realize that you are learning how to make jewelry from a professional jeweler who will devote his full attention to you and make sure that what you make is exceptional. I can't recommend Milad enough.
