Founded in 2010, this blog was established to help educate jewellers of all levels on all the various emergent technologies which affect how jewellery is designed, made, and sold.
In addition to information and training on Jewellery CAD and 3D printing, you can also find learning resources, discuss trends, and offer independent advisory.
CADJewellerySkills is one of the only Jewellery CAD software training providers anywhere who is developer certified to provide training in all major jewellery CAD/CAM software packages (and a few minor ones).
Since I teach all of them but sell none of them, I am uniquely equipped to advise you on the best jewellery CAD software for you.

I have been delivering jewellery CAD training in London’s jewellery quarter Hatton Garden since 2006, and in that time more than 900 students have passed through my classes.
Between my years of experience and the unique perspective I’ve developed from teaching many different programs, I have developed my own unique and better approaches to training.
“Jack is a very talented teacher, he is patient, explains detail very well and is fun to learn with. I would highly recommend anyone that wants to learn CAD for Jewellery to take lessons with him.”
“Thanks to Jack for a really interesting and comprehensive CAD course. It was great being taught by you and I learned lots. Looking forward to applying my new skills! Highly recommend!”
“Jack is a great master indeed, so professional, very generous with his information, he answers every question with confidence and a smiling face, he always provides examples, I would definitely recommend him and I would definitely take more courses with him”
“His knowledge of Jewellery CAD is on a different level, truly a master in 3D CAD. I am looking forward for next course already. To take CJS courses is probably one of the best investments I have made when it comes to my career. 11/10”
“I have just completed a one-one illustrator jewellery design course with Jack. He was fantastic, not only is he patient & informative but has created a program that allows you to gradually develop your learning skills in each session.”
“I took the beginners 3Design class with Jack. All I can say is Jack is a phenomenal CAD teacher and his personality is a huge bonus. I will surely be back to take more advanced classes in the near future. Do not hesitate to sign up for Jack's classes.”
