Basic bench skills 1 on 1 tuition in jewellery, soldering, bezel setting or tube setting of cabochon or facet, polishing.

This is my bench and is not staged. Everything on here is a tool with a function. And it needs a tidy!



So, after 15 years of teaching myself gem cutting, I've decided go back to the much more predictable nature of precious metals, which started off with my metalworking classes in school, 30 years ago.

So. For £150, you can have about four hours of access to me with the primary focus being to go through all the steps needed to fabricate a pendant from sterling silver, with a bezel set cabochon in a fine silver setting. If we whizz through it in three hours, you might want to spend an hour asking questions on the pendant created, or maybe spend an hour asking questions that relate to my knowledge of the jewellery industry, which could include anecdotal evidence, scientific fact, or examples through my own experiences, mostly in general terms, but sometimes very specific depending upon what the subject is.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
