Design Your Own Silver Earrings Workshop - Balance $150
Spend a day designing and making your own drop or stud earrings. We work together to design your own unique pair of earrings and then turn your design into reality.
When designing your unique piece we consider:
- type of earring - studs or dangle
- types of hooks
- Shape of the earrings
- Shaping the metal
- surface finishes - (brushed, polished, embossed, fine silver, oxidised, textured, domed, burnished)
Some of the techniques you will learn include:
- Using a jewellers saw
- Texturing the surface using a hammer
- Filing, polishing and finishing
- Making and soldering earring posts
- Rolling patterns into metal using a rolling mill (i.e. leaves, lace, material)
- Oxidising silver (turning it black)
Sit at a traditional jeweller’s bench and learn to use precision tools. At the end of this fun class, you’ll take home the earrings that you have designed and handmade.
No previous experience necessary. All tools and materials (including sterling silver) are provided. Written instructions, morning and afternoon tea are also included.
