Silver Jewellery Making Weekend - all abilities

Silver Jewellery Making Weekend - all abilities


Create your own unique silver jewellery - no previous experience necessary.

Melinda Scarborough is a talented award winning designer maker jeweller with over 30 years’ experience who specialises in precious metals and gems. On this popular two day workshop you will use a variety equipment to make as many stunning pieces as you can under Melinda's guidance.

Maybe a pendant, bracelet or matching ear rings - once you get the hang of it then you can go on to make further pieces using all the equipment and processes provided. Your design will be individual to you and in the process you will learn many jewellery making techniques including cutting, forming, doming, soldering, texturing and polishing.

People will be able to work at their own pace and make the most of workshop time. Some people make 3 or 4 items and some make just one or two more intricate ones - whatever you choose to design and make Melinda will be there on hand to help you. Group size usually limited to 7.
