Course Overview

On our Hollow Form Ring and Pendant Course you will learn how to create stylish chunky jewellery that is lightweight and comfortable to wear. The hollow form process is perfect for creating statement pieces and also allows you to apply various surface decoration such as an etched or rolled pattern to personalise your design. The course will focus on two distinct projects;

Silver Hollow Formed Pendant

Using sheet silver you’ll make a voluminous lightweight silver pendant personalised with surface decoration of your choosing.

Silver Domed Ring

You’ll be shown how to turn two sheets of silver into a chunky D section ring. You’ll also have the option of adding a gemstone to personalise your design.

You will be guided through the fabrication process. This will include how to form, how to texture and various finishing techniques. It’s also a great class for honing your soldering skills and measuring accuracy skills.

Student Ability Level

This Improver course develops your silver jewellery making skills further after completing one of our beginner terms.
