You can create amazing jewellery just using wire; Learn basic silversmithing skills and create a simple pendant and earrings or a bracelet.

Through the course of the day you’ll learn the basics of how to work with wire, including shaping and texturing the metal, how to solder and then finish your piece. You'll also learn some staples of jewellery making such as how to make your own jump rings, earring findings and clasps. Some basic jewellery making skills are helpful but not necessary.
