This is an exciting new 2-day course where you will get to make your own fused glass cabochon and then set it into a bezel to make a beautiful ring or pendant. Each day starts are 10 am and finishes at roughly 4 pm.

Day 1 – Will we make some basic fused glass cabochons using a variety of dichroic glass and other coloured glass before firing in a microwave kiln. Then in the afternoon while the glass is cooling we will make a practice ring using copper so that you can try out all the necessary jewellery making techniques such as measuring a ring to size, filing, cutting and soldering etc. You will get the chance to make several glass cabochons, so you can choose your favourite for day 2.

Day 2 – The second day will be spent making a piece of sterling silver jewellery using your chosen glass cabochon made on day 1. You make a ring, pendant or halo pendant from silver and then create the bezel from scratch for your chosen dichroic glass cabochon.

Please note – this course is not designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of glass fusing. We will cover the basics to get you started fusing small amounts of glass in a microwave kiln. The learning outcome for the session is to create a glass cabochon and set it into a hand made bezel, with the result being an entire hand made item of jewellery.

    Jesmonite Workshop

    Jesmonite jewellery, coasters and pots. During this workshop, you will learn how to create items from Jesmonite. JESMONITE is a non-toxic, water-based 2 part resin system that dries to an opaque stone like finish. It is a great versatile material to work with and during this workshop you will learn how to create jewellery and other items by adding coloured pigments, using marbling techniques, adding foil and creating 2 tone effects. I have a wide variety of moulds to create jewellery items, coasters/trinket trays, trinket boxes and small plant pot/tea light holders. There is no limit on the amount of items you create, so you can make just jewellery or a combination of items.

    Jesmonite hardens in about 30 mins, so items can be removed from the mould at this point, however 24hrs is needed for items to fully cure. You can take your items home with you at the end of the session, but I would recommend leaving for the full 24hrs before assembling into jewellery. For this reason, students will be responsible for providing their own findings. (I can provide a little silver plated findings so that some pieces can be finished during the session).
