Improver Course: Silver Locket

Our Improver courses are designed to further develop skills garnered on our Beginner Jewellery Course and a great option if you have attended classes elsewhere and know how to anneal and solder. Contact us if you require a skill level assessment.

Lockets offer a wonderful format for learning new techniques. Technically, they call upon a set of skills that are challenging and rewarding. Mastery of these construction techniques will help develop confidence in you making skills.

The basic construction allows adaptation of the design. As the designer you will have the opportunity to create a unique locket using either silver or a stone as the front cover.

This course will take you through the whole process from design through to full construction in step by step demonstrations.

As the whole class is focused on this project it’s a great shared learning opportunity. This is a great project for perfecting advance soldering methods as well as developing precision in cutting and measuring.


Sundries such as solder and saw blades are included in the course fees. Metals, findings and  a variety of stones are available for purchase at the school or feel free to bring your own to work with.


Suitable for Intermediate level students.
