Learn traditional silver jewellery making techniques making a beautiful pair of silver earrings with a semi-precious gemstone bead detail ready to wear. Our earring making workshop is a perfect beginner’s introduction to working in silver, so no prior experience is necessary to enrol on this class.
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. The class runs for 4 hours with refreshments available throughout.
