About the Course

The 3 day course is great way to have a more in-depth exploration of making silver jewellery, with a number of interesting techniques and approaches covered. The course is open to anyone, whether they have had some experience before making jewellery or not. As the course is longer than the one day course you will have ample opportunity to cover the basic techniques as well as exploring more advanced techniques including basic stone setting, etching and creative metal forming.

The following topics are covered, with plenty of hands on to put into practice what we cover in the intro sessions:

- Introduction to materials and techniques
- Useful tools and resources
- Sawing, sanding and filing
- Texturing, mill rolling and decorative finishes
- Annealing and preparation for fabrication
- Basic and intermediate fabrication/soldering
- Final finishing and polishing
- Making your own findings (earring loops, clasps and jump rings)
- Basic ring forming and bezel setting for stones
- Bangle forming and intro to anticlastic and synclastic forming
- Acid etching onto silver

During the 3 day course you can expect to make 3 to 4 pieces which can include a set of earrings, a pendant, a bangle and a ring ….flexibility and choice are key components of the 3 Day course and you are free to suggest what you would like to make as well.

All materials costs are included and on each day a light lunch is included as well as the usual homemade biscuits, good Colombian coffee, a range of fruity teas and a big smile from the Jonathan Deer jewellery team

As all courses cater for a maximum of three participants, you can be sure that you will have a more personalised experience and truly have the mentoring and guidance needed.

Want to review this course?

I highly recommend the three day course. I was a complete beginner and by the end of the course had made four pieces of jewellery that I absolutely love. Jonathon was both extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. He was generous with both his time and resources and left me confident that I would be able to pursue jewellery making as a hobby and more on my own. The course was well structured and Jonathon provided all the equipment and materials needed. I was made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone looking for a comprehensive introduction to jewellery making.
