This workshop will explore the basic techniques and processes for the confident fabrication of jewellery and will enable participants to learn the necessary skills to create their own unique wearable and professional pieces. Participants will be guided through the basics of sawing, filing, soldering, polishing and basic gem setting.

You will start with simple ring making processes and then progress to a simple bezel setting which then can be applied to other forms of jewellery such as pendants and earrings.

Depending on your progress you could expect to complete three or four pieces of sterling silver jewellery.
