What you'll do

We will look at a basic design from a beginners level in silver jewellery making. This can be a ring, pendant, bangle, earrings, brooch. All ideas considered, as long as it's achievable within time frame and skill set. Talk over the idea of what you would like to make . Explore techniques, making templates in copper. After a practice run with copper. We can then begin to pick up the silver and start to look at the processes of how silver needs to be treated and worked, so everything is correct for the form. With my guidance we work through the stages of the structuring and making of the chosen piece. This may include soldering, forming , setting. All of this will be fully explained and worked through in a clear and easy manner. There will be a break with light refreshments. Afterwards the piece will need to be finished. We will go through polishing techniques, texture techniques and patinas. At the end of the session you will have a piece of jewellery handmade by you to take home.
