Pressed Pendant or Earring Making Workshop - $370
In this one and a half day workshop, you can choose to make either a sterling silver necklace pendant (the sterling silver and cable necklace are included) or a pair of sterling silver earrings. After deciding on the shape of your pendant/earrings, you will learn how to make the mould or template that is then used to create the pressed shape. This mould can be used to make more pendants or earrings when you get home.
We then attach our silver to the mould and press it using a flypress. The press creates a depression in the silver in the shape of the tooling we have created. We then use this silver shape to create our unique pendant or pair of earrings. The piece is then cleaned up and the surface is either brushed or polished.
Start time: 9:30am
Duration: 6-7 hours on day one and 3-4 hours on day two.
Workshop location: Workshops are held at the Pod Jewellery Studio in Kyneton - a one-hour drive north of Melbourne along the Calder Freeway.
A $100 deposit is required to secure your place. The balance of $270 is payable in the week before the workshop.
