I'm very happy to say I'll be teaching a two-day course at Missenden Abbey this summer! The course will be silver jewellery with an emphasis on tube setting.
You can click on the picture below for the full details. If you have any specific questions about the course, please feel free to contact me!
Date: 11 - 12 August 2016
Make your own silver jewellery with an emphasis on tube stone setting.
Beginners will be guided through a silver ring project, learning metalwork techniques such as piercing, filing, soldering, sanding, polishing and stone setting as you go. Instruction will be given in the use of tools, including those specific to tube setting. Intermediate students can choose from four set projects (two types of ring and pendant) involving tube setting or create their own design. More experienced students can make their own design or follow the projects and will be shown more advanced tube setting options.
Materials for the set projects will be available to purchase from the tutor (about £7 - £12 per project). Three sizes of tube and corresponding cubic zirconia stone will also be available to purchase from the tutor. If you wish to provide your own materials or have any you feel will benefit the project please feel free to bring them.
