Our earring making workshop is a perfect introduction to try working in silver and discover traditional jewellery making techniques.
In this 4 hour class you will make a beautiful pair of silver earrings with a gemstone bead detail ready to wear. To complete the final piece you’ll learn how to form silver, create surface texture and use wire working techniques to enable you to create the bead detail. We teach you how to safely use a range of jewellery making tools including a soldering torch, pliers and create surface texture using texturing hammers.
No prior jewellery making experience is necessary to enrol on this class, complete beginners are welcome!
We run a very friendly and relaxed workshop, all our taster classes offer a gentle learning curve for beginners to start making silver jewellery and try something new. If you’re completely new to jewellery making and unsure if a beginner term might be too much of a time investment to find out if you enjoy working in silver, then a taster class is worth considering.
All course materials are included in the course fees to make a single pair of silver earrings with a semi-precious gemstone bead detail.
