Juan Reyes

Juan Reyes began studying silver smithing in 1995 at North Seattle Community College and since then has developed extensive expertise in a wide range of techniques including lapidary and goldsmithing. He is generous with his knowledge, patient beyond measure and well loved for his helpful, non-judging nature. Juan brings warmth and creativity to every class he teaches.

What students are saying about Juan:

"Juan created a lovely learning environment. He was super attentive, gave great tips and was so very patient. I look forward to taking more classes with him", Janice 5/23

"I look forward to Mentored Independent Study with Juan Reyes every week. Juan is a very experienced and highly creative jeweler, and he knows many ways to solve jewelry-making dilemmas, from the most basic to the odd and complicated. He is warm-hearted and generous with his time and attention. Tuesday nights at Danaca Design are friendly and inspiring. I have never regretted one minute of the time I’ve been able to spend at Mentored Independent Study on Tuesday evenings."  -Claire R.,  2/23
