Earlier this year I did something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I enrolled on a silver jewellery making course and since day one have been totally and completely hooked.
I am now on the second term and am still absolutely loving it. It’s amazing to learn how to cut, shape, solder and finish a sheet of metal or a length of wire and be able to create something that you could class as a piece of jewellery.
I have so many ideas and things I want to make but I have to remember that it all takes time, especially if you want something to look nice so I need to learn a valuable lesson – patience.
So here are a few of my projects so far – I hope you like them :
Raw amber & sterling silver wire wrapped pendant
Sterling silver twisted wire knot ring
Hammered copper & sterling silver heart earrings
Hammered copper flower ring & plain polished sterling silver band
Aquamarine stone set hammered silver cloud pendant
