If you enjoy wearing silver jewellery, making your own is a great way to experience the process of designing and making your own special piece.
You will learn the entire process of making a bangle with an optional charm. From measuring the lenght of silver to use, cutting, soldering, texturing and shaping to the final stage of polishing. Choose to add a charm that you will need to make from silver sheet and involves more hammers, filing and soldering. All in all, a great experience and it will give you an insight into the process I enjoy so much.
Other things to note
Please ensure you have closed shoes with enclosed toes (a hot bit a silver between the toes makes me cringe), clothes to get dirty, jeans are ideal. Baggy, woolly tops are a hazard in the workshop. I have all the H&S gear you need. Hair is best tied back out the way, it’s very easy to singe hair.
For our Parent and child experience, the adult will make the bangle with charm as above, and the little one will make either an anklet or bracelet with a choice of charms, either colourful Swarovski Crystals or silver charms they can make if they feel confident. No soldering is necessary, but children older than 11 are welcome to. You might think that making jewellery would be mainly for girls, but both my boys enjoy making things in the workshop – ok, one mainly likes melting things – but the other now has his own range of jewellery.
If you would like to make something else, please get in touch and we can discuss the options.
