    2 Day Weekend Beginners Course – Silhouette Pendant or Earrings

    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 attach 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 dependent 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 dependent on time and is not guaranteed. There will be a small charge for silver wire if this project goes ahead.
