I offer a one day, 1 to 1 intensive keepsake jewellery business course. You will learn how to make fingerprint, hand and footprint, pet paws and dog nose jewellery in fine silver clay.
Using computer software you will learn how to create a negative of your prints and then make a stamp which can then be pressed into the silver clay and then torch fired to create a solid piece of jewellery. You will learn how to create a mirror finish to your jewellery and to also add patina which highlights the prints. Throughout the course of the day you will make several pieces of jewellery. At the end of the day's course you will be confident enough to begin to set up your own keepsake jewellery business.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Enough silver clay to make several pieces of jewellery. I will supply tea, coffee and biscuits but please bring a packed lunch.
Amanda is such a professional and knowledgable lady. Her course was well planned with copious notes especially on using computer software to produce negatives. I had never used silver clay before but Amanda’s excellent tuition enabled me to produce pieces of a professional standard. I now have the confidence to begin my own business and I already have my first commission.
I attended this course on Saturday, travelling from Cheltenham down to Poole ,which took just over two hours......and it was so very worth the effort and time taken. Amanda made me feel very welcome and immediately at ease. She explained every step of each process and took the time to establish it was understood and gave excellent support throughout the day. I came away with beautiful pieces of keepsake jewellery, written guidelines to enable me to repeat the process once at home, and above all the knowledge and confidence to do so.
Amanda has been supportive all the way through the process, from the initial booking and directions, through to advice on tools and supplies as well as handy hints and tips. Well worth every penny. Can highly recommend this course.
