Saul BellWhether you're new to making jewelry or an old pro taking a jewelry making class to add a trick to the toolbox, Rio Grande is your source for learning.

When Saul Bell founded Rio Grande Jewelry Making Supplies in 1944, he took daily delight in passing along his jewelry making knowledge (which was vast!).

Decades later, Rio continues to be a partner in learning for jewelry makers all over the world. We've reveled in being part of that initial spark, eternal obsession and perseverance that live in every artist. We've seen contagious curiosity in action in students and teachers alike. Questions have led to answers, answers to ideas, ideas to growth, and ultimately to the growth of hundreds of thousands of jewelers in this ever-growing industry.

Take a class, watch a video, make a project, walk a trade show, see what happens when your wild ideas attract good company—learn with Rio!
