Service Description

2 Day Jewellery making course for beginners 10 - 4 pm This course is a new 2 day introduction to some basic jewellery making techniques aimed at beginners. The focus this time is on saw piercing and sweat soldering using sheet metal (not wire) to make a silhouette pendant or earrings and we will cover some basic skills to get you started . - Course Breakdown - Day 1 - In the morning we will start with practicing some texturing techniques on sheet metal such as hammers to texture, punches to add a design or the rolling mill to emboss with texture. This will be followed by some saw piecing practice, cutting some shapes in copper using a jewellers saw. In the afternoon we will continue with saw piercing and introduce some sweat soldering techniques to attached some of your cut out shapes together, layering them to make a mock up design in copper ready for day 2. Day 2 - We will utilise all the skills covered on day 1 to make a silver silhouette pendant or you could choose to make some earrings instead. You will be provided with a small sheet of sterling silver to do this so depending on the design you choose, you may get more than one pendant, or 2 pairs of earrings etc. This is very much dependant on the design and size you choose. Skills covered during the 2 day course will be - texturing metal, saw piercing (cutting using a jewellery saw), filing and sanding, soldering and polishing. We will also discuss some additional information such as hallmarking requirements if you wish to make jewellery to sell. I can also provide a suppliers list for materials and tools etc. Time permitting you may get to make a simple ring from silver but this is very much dependant on time and is not guaranteed. There will be a small charge for silver wire if this project goes ahead.
