SILVER CLAY PENDANT

In this workshop you will make a simple texture mold to use with your silver clay. You will learn to make beautiful one-off unique piece with or without a Cubic Zirconia stone. We will dry and torch fire the pieces and then finish to a brilliant shine ready to add to your chains or earnings. This workshop is a 4-5 hours with a break in between.

Stacking Rings

Jewellery Workshop - Stacking Rings

In the ring making workshop participants will measure their ring size and learn to cut patterned or plain ring wire accurately so that it can be soldered with a torch. They will then shape it on a ring mandrel and texture the surface and then finally polishing the ring so that it glows. I hope that each participant makes at least 3 rings but maybe 4 if time allows.
