Sterling Silver and Beaded Jewellery making Workshops

Make your own unique sterling silver or beaded piece of jewellery or gift a workshop session as a present with a voucher. The sterling silver workshops are aimed for teens and adults, various options are available. Older children (8-12 year olds) could also attend if for example attending with their mother/ father/ carer. The adult will have to do the soldering part for them. The silver plated & beaded workshops are for children (6+) and adults. Children can attend these without a parent present. I also do private lessons/ courses. In these classes you can tell me what you would like to make or I can inspire you with ideas!

 

Sterling Silver Stacking Rings

You will be guided through all the techniques and design methods acquired to make 3 (solid sterling) silver stacking rings. You will learn to make textures using hammers, shape the rings using a hammer and mallet, solder, file, sandpaper and polish using various tools and equipment.

 

Sterling Silver Textured Band Ring

On this workshop you will learn all the techniques needed to make a textured silver band ring. You will also make same texture sample sheets from brass or copper using a rolling mill and or hammers. After you have shaped your ring you will solder, file, paper and polish (you can also choose to have a mat/ satin finish).

 

Sterling Silver Textured  Bangle or cuff

You will be shown all the techniques and design methods acquired to make a sterling silver bangle (closed) or cuff and a couple of textured samples from copper or brass. The cuff has an open or overlapping back so no soldering will be involved. You will learn to make textures (using a rolling mill and or hammers) to pierce out your bangle, file, paper and polish.

 

There’s a slight extra material cost for the silver bangles. Between £5 - £15 pp depending if you’re making a delicate or big/ chunky bangle or cuff.
