DIY Silversmithing for Beginners: 4 Sessions

Make your own jewellery at home with an Aussie artisan


If you have prior jewellers experience, you’ll learn even more about how to make your own jewellery in part two of this silversmithing course.

Take your skills to the next level in this virtual experience and experiment with new tools like the screw mount bench peg, electric drill and saw. These new tools will open up a host of design possibilities, as well as allow you to expand your newly acquired skills from the DIY Silversmithing 1 online class.

You will learn the classic art of silversmithing, by learning how to create sterling silver pendants, earrings, bracelets, chains using silver and copper wire. Keep them for yourself, or if you’re stuck for gifting ideas, give your loved ones one of your own creations.

You will build on your jewellery making design, hammering, measuring, shaping, texturing, forming, and filing skills, as well as learn how to use the saw, drill, and screw mount bench peg.

After a few online classes, and through multiple projects, you will no doubt build your skills and confidence with using specific silversmithing tools. It’s up to you whether you then want to advance to the next online course. This introduces newer tools along with more advanced projects and techniques. Or, simply explore the various aspects of wrapping, shaping wire, and sawing shapes, expanding on the possibilities with the tools you already have in your kit.

You will be able to confidently make your own jewellery, with no supervision in no time! This series of craft courses online will offer you all the help and guidance you need to get started on your own creative endeavours afterwards.

In this workshop series, you will be making:

  • Oval disc earrings with dangles
  • Drilled gemstone earrings
  • Mixed metal chain with pendant
  • Scroll cut pendant with pearl accent
  • Cuff bracelet

So if you don’t know what to do this weekend at home, whether you’re in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol or anywhere in the UK, this virtual class is something different and exciting to try!

Explore your love of jewellery at your own pace with one of the most creative indoor activities to try at home. If you want productive things to do at home, this is perfect if you want to keep busy in lockdown.
