Personalised jewellery with names, dates and special words is becoming more and more popular, on this workshop you will learn how to personalise your jewellery making using design stamps, texturing and letter stamps. We will also explore doming and easy ways of producing your own small charms from sheet silver, making holes, opening and closing jump ring correctly and making your own fine silver headpins. We'll also cover making wrapped loops, simple hand made clasps and making your own semi-precious, freshwater pearl and Swarovski crystal dangles. We will use a combination of silver and copper blanks and sheet to produce beautiful jewellery for you to take home.
The 3 day workshop lets you go deeper into jewellery making with 2 days of stamping plus an extra day chosen from our one day workshops.
Workshops are kept small 1-3 people to make sure you get lots of attention and you will stay in your own room in a cosy renovated cottage. There will be no single supplement and vegetarians will be well fed !
