Course Overview

Gemstone Silver Bracelet Course

Learn how to design and make a silver bracelet or necklace using cabochon or rose cut stones. This course takes students through the entire process of designing and making jewellery, as a result, students will gain a thorough understanding of the jewellery making process.

This bracelet comprises of repeated elements which involve a range of different processes to achieve the final piece. It is through this repetition that you will practice and perfect your making skills which will be transferable to other projects.

With direction from the project brief you will firstly draw out your design, on completion you will source your own materials to suit your taste, design and budget. Once we have moved into the workshop we will begin the step by step process of fabrication with full direction from the tutor.

As the whole class is focused on one project it is a great shared learning opportunity. On completion students will have strengthened confidence in their ability to design, work to a budget, solder and set cabochon stones with a higher proficiency in their technical ability.
